It is clear that this administration intends to continue spending at a level that can only increase an already dangerous debt. It is past time for taxpayers to be forced to face and fix this spending craze.

I can visualize the day that two IRS agents approach a quiet home, ring the bell and upon the door opening see a young husband and wife standing there, the woman with a baby in her arms. I see the agents ask, “Is John at home?” Either the man or woman turns and retreats into the house, returning a short time later with a small boy. One of the agents passes a bill for $130,000 to young Johnny and says, “This is your share of the debt, young man. It’s time to think about how you are going to pay it.” Turning to leave, one of the agents turns back and smiles at the young mother and her baby. He says, “Don’t worry, little one; we will have one for you, too.”

It is time to make it clear that everyone will be hurt, rich and poor alike, if this debt is not brought under control.
