Federal Budget & Spending
At a time when our federal debt exceeds $20 trillion, Congressman Hice believes every effort must be made to rein in Washington spending instead of simply raising the debt ceiling. Not only is excessive spending harmful to future generations, it is detrimental to our economy and our national security. In order to get our fiscal house in order, we need long term spending cuts, which will have to include significant reforms to our entitlement programs. At the same time, Congress must not and cannot neglect critical investments in our future.
Congressman Hice fully supports the ratification of a Balanced Budget Amendment as the most effective way to address Washington’s spending problem. If hardworking American families and small businesses across Georgia’s Tenth Congressional District can balance their budgets, Washington should be able to do so as well. The federal government must be prepared to make the same sacrifices, and Congressman Hice continues to fight to make the Balanced Budget Amendment a reality.
