The Reform Party leadership calls on Washington to balance the Federal Budget. This debt is a burden on the next generations of taxpayers, and interest payments on this debt threaten the fiscal health of the entire economy.
The last time the Federal budget was balanced was in 1999 under the Bill Clinton administration, and American debts race towards the 20 Trillion dollar mark. This debt was created by pork barrel spending, hand outs to special interests, fraud, overspending on military projects and waste. The Reform Party wishes to balance the budget by addressing these issues, and raising revenue by cutting special interest tax loopholes.
