Sen. Jeff Flake this Thursday, Apr. 4 will appear at a special discussion on the national debt taking place at the Fairway Center in Sun City.
The forum is a presentation of the Arizona arm of the national Fix the Debt campaign. I sit on the Arizona steering committee along with other business and political leadership across the state as together we look for bipartisan solutions to alleviate our country’s crushing national debt.
During the spring recess, senators and representatives are going back to their home districts to host discussions about the national debt. They are using this break to continue to push a bipartisan, comprehensive agreement to reduce the deficit and control the debt.
At over $16 trillion dollars, the national debt is begging to be addressed with serious, commonsense solutions; our newly elected U.S. senator is doing just that.
Businesses of all sizes have much to gain from a reduction in the national debt. Reduction of the deficit and putting the debt on a path to payoff would create economic certainty that will foster a business climate more conducive to hiring and making new investments.
With our national debt growing at a rate of more than $2 billion every day, businesses don’t know what to expect. Interest rates and inflation rates will likely continue to increase, creating an environment that is extremely detrimental to business, and preventing our economy from truly taking off.
The Campaign to Fix the Debt is working tirelessly to address the national debt now rather than sweeping it under the rug for future generations to attempt to fix.
I look forward to seeing you on Thursday at 10:00 AM in Sun City.
