RSC Budget Provides Only Clear Path Toward Fiscal Responsibility

The national debt stands at more than $22 trillion, with trillion-dollar deficits right around the corner.  Entitlement spending continues to rise and is projected to make up 60 percent of spending for Fiscal Year (FY) 2020.  Social Security will exceed its income in 2020 for the first time since 1982 and Medicare is set to become insolvent by out in 2026.

Dear Representative,

On behalf of the more than one million members and supporters of the Council for Citizens Against Government Waste (CCAGW), I urge you to oppose H.R. 2021, the Investing for the People Act, in order to avoid a significant rise in both the spending caps and the national debt.
