Spending Restraint

In 2011, Republicans and Democrats came together to enact modest spending caps on the one-third of the federal budget that Congress allocates annually.

Unfortunately, politicians have already given in to special interests and abandoned $62 billion of those cuts.

Now, some want to abandon the caps altogether. Allowing that to happen will add hundreds of billions of dollars to our already catastrophic debt.

Instead of going back on its promise, Congress must keep the discretionary spending levels to which they agreed, or they must replace them with real cuts.

If politicians can’t keep their word and maintain federal spending within these modest and bipartisan agreed-to limits, it’s hard to imagine they will address the looming entitlement crisis that threatens growth and opportunity for decades to come.
