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," said Earley.

Two weeks ago, Earley released his plan for ending illegal immigration.  His comprehensive plan includes:
  • Building the wall,
  • No federal government payouts to illegal immigrants,
  • End the catch and release program that allows criminal illegal immigrants back on to our streets,
  • Increasing funding for ICE,
  • End birthright citizenship for babies born to parents who are illegally in the United States,
  • End chain migration for non-immediate family members,
  • Hold back federal funding for sanctuary states and cities,
  • End the abuse of asylum claims,
  • Prohibit taxpayer dollars from paying for attorneys for illegal immigrants,
  • End the visa lottery system.
  • Prohibit illegal aliens from receiving taxpayer-funded benefits such as health care, welfare and housing,
  • Increasing penalties on businesses that purposely hire illegal aliens,
  • Requiring mandatory employer verification,
  • Re-evaluate criteria for refugee status,
  • Strengthen background checks on visas,
  • Withhold certain federal funds for states that allow illegal immigrants to get drivers' licenses,
  • End visa overstays,
  • Increase penalties for human trafficking,
  • Increase funds for courts dealing with deportation disputes, and deny false asylum claims access to our courts, and
  • Enact merit-based immigration reform to expedite naturalization process.

Earley is the only candidate putting out real plans.  He is also the only candidate who has visited the border.
