"Our government has become so entangled in the forest of deficit spending that it seems to have lost any sense of discretion," says ACU's chairman David Keene. "Plans to offset federal spending on Katrina disaster relief and reconstruction such as the recent proposals made by the House Republican Study Committee, as well as the proposals put out forward by Speaker Hastert and Majority Leader Blunt are a good start. But, organizations like ACU, Heritage, and the Club for Growth are concerned that these measures will do little to really reduce the out-of-control spending and $7.99 trillion federal debt. Much more must be done."
