The Road Ahead

November 17, 2013
By Congressman Tom Reed , The Post-Journal

The quote "Insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results" has been attributed to many famous figures from Ben Franklin to Albert Einstein to Rita Mae Brown. Regardless of who actually said it, it certainly applies to Washington, D.C. For decades, our national government has spent much more money than it brings in. Save for a few years in the mid-1990s (when, incidentally, we had a Democratic President and a Republican House as we do now), our debt has grown to the point where it now totals $17 trillion dollars, or approximately $55,000 per man, woman and child in America. Think about that: for each baby born today, he or she draws their first breath in America owing over $55,000 in debt.
