By the time you finish reading this, our national debt will have increased by over $5 million. The current $31 trillion in debt is a ticking time bomb that is bringing us to the brink of bankruptcy and immorally burdening our children and grandchildren. If that doesn’t scare you, consider that about a third of our debt is held by foreign countries, including China.

Enough is enough.

U.S. Rep. Vern Buchanan waves to the crowd during a rally for former President Donald Trump at the Sarasota Fairgrounds in July 2021.

Now is the time to act, as Washington discusses raising the debt ceiling. Nobody wants to default on our debts, but we also can’t keep spending money we don’t have. We cannot continue to raise the debt ceiling without addressing the root cause of the debt itself—massive overspending by the federal government.
