Position Papers
The Budget Plan
The White House has just announced the new Fiscal Year 2011, with a projected deficit of 1.27 trillion dollars. Last year, the budget was announced with an estimated 1.17 trillion dollar deficit, and it now appears the actual number will be 1.60 trillion. Applying that same likely growth from projection to actual deficit, we are looking at a federal budget deficit likely to reach 1.74 trillion dollars this year.

Our nation stands at a precipice. Over the last year, Congress has pressed radical policies that threaten our liberty, our prosperity, and the very stability of our free society. Growing unemployment, expanding government control, and an exploding deficit to pay for wasteful programs have created an environment of paralyzing uncertainty and accelerating decline. We must act.
