Massie Comments on National Debt Reaching $16 Trillion

“Everyone acknowledges the urgency of the crisis we face, but instead of doing what needs to be done … what we get from Washington is an astounding lack of leadership”

FLORENCE, Kentucky – Today, Republican nominee for Kentucky’s 4th Congressional district, Thomas Massie, released the following statement regarding America’s national debt surpassing the $16 trillion-dollar mark.

“Over the last few years we’ve seen our national debt expand at an alarming rate. Everyone acknowledges the urgency of the crisis we face, but instead of doing what needs to be done to get things under control, what we get from Washington is an astounding lack of leadership. The political elites who are supposed to be in charge have abdicated their responsibilities and left hardworking Americans to shoulder this unsustainable debt burden.

“What we need in Washington are people willing to offer bold, constitutionally sound solutions that actually reduce our debt and initiate growth. We must act soon to secure our children and grandchildren’s futures. That’s what I pledge to do if you send me to Congress.”
