Dr. Boozman's Check-up
Senator Jeff Sessions of Alabama, the Ranking Member of the Senate Budget Committee, put out a startling one-pager today about how our debt keeps our economy from creating jobs. If anyone doubts that the ever-increasing debt is not a drain on the economy, they should take a minute to read my colleague's one-pager.
Sen. Sessions's research also serves as further evidence why we need to cut spending immediately. Now is not the time to increase spending, as some in Washington are advocating, as adding even more to our debt will only slow the recovery even more.
