David Hancock, 7th District Congressional Candidate, strongly believes that Georgia Voters should "Vote out all incumbents who voted for the $2.4 trillion debt ceiling increase in 2011. We must elect REAL conservatives into office to solve our debt problems NOW!"
Mr. Hancock goes on to say that "Voters across Gwinnett and Forsyth counties are fed up with Washington incumbents who lack the political courage to stand up to the giant spending machine that our government has become. Many people in the 7th district aren't aware that their Congressman, Rob Woodall, voted to dig us $2 trillion deeper into debt when the House approved the largest debt increase in American history."
Not only did the debt limit increase put us on a much weaker financial footing, we are now facing some of the other consequences of the deal, the most destructive of which will be a mandatory $500 billion cut in Defense spending in 2013. And because we did not address the over-spending problem the US credit rating was downgraded for the first time in history.
Mr. Woodall can give lip service to being a conservative and wishing we had a fair tax, but if the voters lack the courage to stand up to their convictions and agree that spending in Washington has gotten way out of control, the only change in Washington will be more and more debt that future generations of Americans will have to repay. In fact, many are starting to wonder if it even can be repaid. At the rate the economy is going, it's conceivable that the interest rate on our debt could be in the $TRILLIONS in the very near future.
Mr. Woodall believed it was a good idea to increase the debt ceiling last time. Will you be happy if he is re-elected and increases our debt AGAIN?
