If you were elected President, how would you decide what to do first? You might look at what is "most wrong" with America. And for Dr. Ben Carson, that is our staggering national debt.
In an exclusive interview with WND, Carson shares what he'll do Day 1 if he's elected President:
"As president, I plan to address this on my first day in office – Jan. 20, 2017.
Here’s what I will do on Day 1.
I will tell the nation that, beginning immediately, we will no longer borrow money from future generations to sustain the growth of government or empower it over ordinary Americans.
Beginning immediately, we will also end the un-American idea that we can have unlimited, unaccountable government through reckless, irresponsible and immoral borrowing against our future.
I will put Congress on notice. As president, I will not look favorably upon the idea of raising the debt limit when it comes into question. Until now, Congress and the president have been engaged in a game of chicken over every debt ceiling increase. This is a game I will not play, as I intend to shine the light on those responsible for spending the money in the first place. We will need to begin making cuts, ending programs, streamlining departments and agencies, stopping waste and eradicating spending so that Washington will live within its means just like ordinary Americans must.
I will not be waiting until a month before we reach the next food fight over the debt ceiling. I will make this announcement immediately so that we can begin planning, conferring and making intelligent decisions.
We will not allow America to default upon the loan obligations it has already incurred. I pledge to the American people that we will continue to service the debt to avoid the possibility of a lowered credit rating for the U.S. Instead, we will do what any responsible business, government or individual would do faced with overwhelming debt – stop spending and borrowing beyond our means."
Wow. What a strong statement! Do you think Dr. Carson's plan is a good one? Let us know your thoughts in the Comments! Thank you!
