WHY I AM RUNNING

I have twelve important reasons for caring what happens in Congress – my three children and my nine grandchildren. My wife, Nina, and I have taught them to work before they play, to save before they spend. They’re resourceful, thrifty, and self-reliant. But it almost 308037_283241881687588_1493816689_ndoesn’t matter. Because every time Congress bails out another bank, automaker, insurer, or mortgage lender, they pile debt on my children and grandchildren.

If you take the national debt as it now stands, and divide it equally among every man, woman, and child in the country, we each owe $37,000. That number will more than double over the next ten years. That has real-life consequences. When my ten-year-old granddaughter graduates from college, her share of the national debt is likely to be as high as $100,000.

John Adams said, “There are two ways to enslave a nation. One is by arms. The other is by debt.” I want to keep my children free. I’m running for Congress to restore fiscal discipline. I will work to cut spending, cap the budget at 18% of the GDP and pass a balance budget amendment. We need to grow the economy and pay off our debt!
