Duncan Hunter on the budget and waste.
"I support a balanced federal budget, with additional revenue provided by economic growth, not increased taxes. Further, I support limiting growth in non-defense areas."I can agree with that one hundred percent. My readers know that I have always said a tax increase is the last resort solution. Cut waste first! Duncan writes about the areas of federal spending that will be priority for reductions and increases:
A balanced federal budget is a priority for our national economic health and long-term prosperity. Throughout my tenure in Congress, I have fought for federal spending to provide for our national and homeland security, as directed by the U.S. Constitution, and funding increases in both of these arenas will be necessary in the future to keep our families safe and secure.
Budgetary savings must be identified through efficiency reforms throughout the federal government. Furthermore, we must aggressively attack the creation and funding of duplicative federal programs, many of which simply do not perform but cost taxpayers millions of their hard-earned dollars. According to Office of Management and Budget, 28% of federal programs are either ineffective or have results that are not demonstrated. Reforming, combining or eliminating those programs remains among my highest legislative priorities.
Indeed. I will add that the 28% number is most likely an underestimate. It kills me to hear the raising taxes come out of a politician's mouth when there is so much waste to be cut out first. Duncan is a cosponsor of the Fair Tax. He believes that securing and protecting our country is the priority of the federal government. He is not afraid to speak out against the RINO's that have overtaken our party. If given the chance, he will lead this country in the right direction.
His campaign could use your help. Duncan is not paying for consultants to change him. He is not spending triple digits on hair cuts. He is using grass root people like you and me to get his message out door to door. If you can give a little cash, it will go for the right things. $20 buys a lot of mailers. We have a chance to put a solid man in the White House. A man with a 26 year record of service. When you read the candidates bio's and records, you see Duncan is unique. Click here to help him out.
