Enzi Expresses Concern About National Debt
Written by Andrew-Rossi on February 14, 2018
During a hearing yesterday on President Trump’s fiscal year 2019 budget proposal, Wyoming Senator Mike Enzi said Americans deserve a serious budget that addresses the nation’s fiscal priorities while curbing the national debt.
Enzi, who is chairman of the Senate Budget Committee, said that the country’s $20 trillion dollars in debt is one of his greatest concerns.
Enzi and other committee members addressed their comments to Mick Mulvaney, the director of the Office of Management and Budget, who said the budget does not balance within 10 years, but said he thought it was better to be realistic about the budget picture.
As chairman, Enzi has devoted much of the committee’s work on bipartisan ideas to fix America’s broken budget process. He says that ignoring the tough problems today will not make them disappear, and the longer they persist, the more difficult they will be to fix.
