Reform Party National Chairman David Collison called the debate on raising the debt ceiling another reminder that the country is faced with a leadership defecit.
“The Democrats and Republicans continue to prove that they are incapable of addressing the deficit and debt they created,” said Collison. “The debt has grown by over $10 trillion in less than 20 years, and neither party plans to make it stop. We cannot afford to keep raising the debt ceiling, and sacrificing the future of our children and grandchildren.”
Collison added that the Reform Party believes that the American economy cannot withstand the poor leadership of the Democratic and Republican parties any longer.
“The only way America will balance its budget and repay our debts to foreign nations is by shared sacrifices from all Americans, ending corporate welfare, serious spending cuts across the board, elimination of special interest projects, and addressing economic issues in America.”
Collison noted that none of current proposals would do anything to keep the national debt from reaching $20 trillion in less than ten years, or keep debt payments under $800 billion in the same time frame. Current government projections have payments on the national debt approaching 80 percent of all revenues, which will make funding the nation’s military, social security and other key programs impossible.
“Both sides have waited until the last moment to deal with the most complex issue facing the country,” Collision said. Calling such move “total irresponsible governance,” Collison called on all Americans upset with the status quo to contact the Reform Party, and help build a viable alternative to Democrats and Republicans.
“Right now,” Collison said, “we have Democrat and Republican politicians that are more concerned about elections than the best interests of the American people. We need people committed to honest leadership and new ideas to unseat incumbent lawmakers before they do more damage. The problem exists because only two extreme positions are represented at the table”.
The public needs a balanced party, focused on practical, American solutions – not political ideologies. America needs the Reform Party.
