Viewpoint: The One-Cent solution

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Our national debt has nearly tripled in the last four years.

That means that every man, woman, and child in the country owes more than fifty thousand dollars in debt.

Now is the time to get this debt under control and we think a proposal from Eight District Congressman Austin Scott could help achieve that.

His "One Cent Solution," calls on Congress to cut just one percent from every dollar spent, from every agency each year the Budget is not balanced.

Families and businesses have done that, churches have done that, almost every American has made those simple, one percent cuts, in their budget, and Congress can too!

We call on our leaders to recognize this as a way to turn our country's finances around and put the brakes on this growing national debt.
