Greatest Threat To Our National Security
You elected me as an outsider to Washington, and that hasn't changed. Despite the noise coming out of Washington, I'm focused on changing the direction of our country.
Here's an update on what I've been working on this week:
1. Greatest Threat To Our National Security
Rising Debt is greatest national security threat. Here's how to fix it.
By Senator David Perdue
Great nations fall over time when they allow fiscal and economic issues to spiral past the tipping point of a crisis. America has always been the best at responding to a moment of crisis, but we’re often the last to recognize that we’re in a crisis.
2. Shaking Things Up
Senate Republican Class of 2014 Looking to Shake Things Up
Perdue is one of 10 Republican senators who swept into office in 2014. In that election, the GOP gained nine seats in the chamber, giving the party a majority in the Senate for the first time since 2007.
3. One more thing...
The so-called budget the U.S. Senate passed this week should be taken with a grain of salt. It's not being used as a budgetary tool to control spending because these budgets are resolutions, not laws. I've been saying this for two years: the entire budget process is broken. The only reason we are doing the budget this way is to get a technical structure in place so we can get tax done this year. I'm not willing to jeopardize our chances to get tax done, otherwise, I wouldn't be going along with this sham.
