Debt: 'Owing the World'

There is indeed a crisis in Washington--the Congress.

President Reagan really shamed Congress when he lifted 45 pounds of wraparound spending bills. These megabills of $600 million are the same as stealing money out of the pockets of the taxpayers.

Our President needs a constitutional amendment mandating a balanced budget and the authority to veto individual line items of spending bills. His pen will cross out all the wasteful spending.
