Highlights:

Growing Debt Crisis: “Just two weeks ago, our national debt ticked over to $22 trillion. Over the next 30 years alone, we have $130 trillion of unfunded liabilities of this federal government. That is $1 million per household.”

Economic Revival: “President Trump came in two years ago and said we’ve got to grow the economy. There were two benefits to that. You put people back to work, but you get federal revenue from growth that helps offset this growing debt. We have started an economic revival here that we believe over the next ten years lowers the debt curve by about $3 trillion. Yet over the next decade, unless we do something about mandatory spending, we’re going to add another $10 trillion. That can’t happen.”

This Is A Process: “I give President Trump and his team a lot of credit for bringing Kim Jung Un to the table. It’s a process. We can’t give up our sanctions, and I support the President in that. We need to see measurable results, we need to put inspectors on the ground, and I believe we will get there.”
