Debt: 'Owing the World'

January 31, 1988

While it's great to give this national shame high-profile coverage, tax increases aren't the only answer. This voter will look for a candidate who supports:

--Freeze on federal spending at present levels.

--Balance income with outgo and increase income taxes to do so, but only after a spending freeze is in place.

--Initiate a national sales tax to reduce consumption and use it only for debt reduction.

--Give the President authority to eliminate all obvious waste.

To raise taxes supposedly to reduce the debt without a spending freeze, however, only leads to more spending and more debt.
