Other than times of severe economic recession or during national disasters, I believe the Federal Government should pay for its programs as the costs are incurred. Furthermore the national debt should be required to be paid down during periods of economic prosperity. Interest alone on the national debt is capable of dragging the economy down and because much of the debt is financed by foreign countries, it puts the U.S. at risk of being held hostage to the whims of those foreign nations. After the financial recovery occurs, I believe any wars should be financed primarily at the time the costs are occurring.
