Washington liberals have been touting a “balanced approach” to fixing the American economy.
But so far all they’ve given us is:
That’s not balance. That’s tax-and-spend liberalism, and it’s driving us further and further from our Founders’ vision of a constitutional, limited government.The problem is clear: our leaders in Washington not only have an over-taxing problem—they also have an over-spending problem. The fact is, Washington is spending more money than ever . . . $3.6 trillion in fiscal year 2013! And spending will only continue to grow. More spending means more government power concentrated in the hands of Washington bureaucrats. It means you have less and less control over your own life. It means our children and grandchildren will face ever-higher taxes. We are on an unsustainable path. We must restore balance now.
Better still, this plan will allow us to fully fund our national defense, a key obligation of our government under the Constitution.And this plan fits into our Saving the American Dream plan, which cuts spending . . . lowers and simplifies taxes . . . reforms runaway government programs . . . and fundamentally limits the size and scope of the federal government. Last year, Senator Mike Lee of Utah introduced a budget based directly on Heritage’s Saving the American Dream plan. With your support, we can continue to educate lawmakers about the importance of cutting spending and limiting government.
