American families live within a budget and so should government. Unfortunately, under the current Administration's watch, the national debt increased over 40%. America spends 100% of its GDP and now borrows more than 40 cents to every dollar just to cover the over $15 trillion national debt.
Ann knows that it is time to rein in spending before we mortgage our children's future. She firmly believes that we owe future generations the chance to achieve their dream rather than the responsibility of paying off our debt. However, Ann understands that we cannot limit debt without controlling spending. She supports cutting up the government credit card and instituting a Balanced Budget Amendment that prevents government from spending more than it takes in.
Ann also supports returning power to individual states. By doing so, costs will be lowered and the redundancy between the state and federal government will be eliminated.
