Action, not talk, needed on spending

From BankruptingAmerica.org:

In 1986 our debt was $2.1 trillion and Washington was making promises to rein in our excessive spending. Twenty-seven years later Washington is still making promises, but the only differences we see are a $16 trillion debt and better picture quality on C-SPAN.

If we’ve learned anything since then, it’s that the only thing a talking politician is good for is a distraction. We need action from Washington, not more years of hot air and debt.
