You wouldn’t have known since few in Washington are really talking about it, but the national debt problem hasn’t gotten any better. In fact, it is getting worse and will continue to deteriorate unless something is done.
President Trump will unveil an outline of his first budget next week. Help us encourage him to address the national debt in it.
