Earley Calls for Debt Commission
BRIDGEPORT, W.Va. - Nov. 27, 2023 - PRLog -- Today in response to the threat of a credit rating drop, Veteran and Republican Congressional candidate Joe Earley (R-WV2), announced that he supports a commission tasked with developing a plan to lower our country's debt.
The national debt is over $33.7 trillion and climbing. Recently Moody's, a leading credit rating agency, issued a warning about lowering the federal government's credit rating from "stable" to "negative." That would increase our nation's interest payments on the debt which is already costing taxpayers $659 billion per year.
"Our nation has maxed out the credit cards and it is time to cut back before the USA goes bankrupt. That's why I support an immediate commission tasked with logically cutting spending," said Earley. "When Greece went bankrupt, they had to increase taxes 12 times and cut important programs. I don't want to see that happen here. We have made promises to our veterans and seniors. We must keep those promises."
"A commission will help us get a handle on this debt problem," said Earley. "Some liberals officials have suggested increasing taxes to lower the debt, but that would damage our already fragile economy that is being crippled by inflation. Congress should adopt zero base budgeting so every dime has to be justified."
"As the next Congressman, I will be making many recommendations beyond zero base budgeting on how to control spending. I challenge my opponent, Riley Moore, to do the same. He is the state Treasurer. Does he have any ideas on fiscal matters? I believe that the voters need to know if a candidate has a plan. So far, Moore has no policy statements,"
Two weeks ago, Earley released his plan for ending illegal immigration. His comprehensive plan includes:
Earley is the only candidate putting out real plans. He is also the only candidate who has visited the border.
