United States taxpayers are now racking up more than $100 million of debt per hour
Dear Friend of America's Survival,
Rep. Chip Roy on Congress approving nearly $1.4 trillion in funding with bipartisan support: "This bill borrows, and it borrows at a time when we can't afford to borrow another penny. Our nation is $23 trillion in debt, now racking up more than $100 million of debt per hour."
He goes on to say,
These bills are troubling for several reasons. I’ll name a few:
- Authorizes DHS to nearly double the available H-2B visas for the remainder of FY 2020
- Includes a 7-year reauthorization of the Export-Import Bank
- Increases the tobacco age to 21 - which is a violation of liberty and a play to Big Tobacco (not to mention the plays to insurance companies)
- Provides barely a fraction of the necessary border security funding -- $1.375 billion for “fence and wall construction” while the White House requested $8.6 billion
It is unfortunate that many of my Republican colleagues, who spent years campaigning on repealing Obamacare and "fiscal restraint," voted in favor of these bills which prop up Obamacare and spend money we don't have.
For America's Survival,
