Our country's greatest threat comes from misguided financial decisions by our own elected officials. In the past four years we have seen our nation pile up more than $4 trillion in additional debt, adding almost 50% to our nation's credit card bill, more than we acquired in total over the first 200 years since the founding of the Republic. Today, however, Jonathan knows that we can no longer wait for career politicians to make better choices about the deficit and debt -- we need new leadership now.
