    What is the $16,000,000,000,000 question? Earlier this week, the national debt hit the historic $16 Trillion mark. What does this mean for our, and future, generations? What will it mean for the economy? Click here to join us right now for our “Lunch with Heritage” online chat. We are  joined by Heritage’s Romina Boccia and she is taking your questions on what the national debt means for us and for future generations.

      I am tired of people allowing the Democrats and Barrack Obama getting away with saying he inherited the 'worst economy since the Great Depression.' Then they take it even farther and say 'and nobody disputes that.' It simply is not true, the economy the President Regan took over was much worse and our standing in the world was more diminished than ever. The difference is President Regan freed up private investors to jump start the economy and got government out of the way. Please stop letting Barrack Obama and the Democrats get away with this lie.

      Last night Eva Longoria stated she needed a tax cut working at Wendy's but she doesn't need a tax cut working on stage! Well, wasn't that commendable to point out? Her stage job she doesn't hire and making millions off the way she looks and acts, says her money should strictly go to charities of her choice (not mandated by government,) as her position in life is non productive in productivity and her pay is selfish. Are tax cuts based on eligibility? If not, they certainly should be. Restricted to areas that hire only with increase taxes on Eva's income!

      Thank you for spending the hour with us.
      Where can I find more information about adding to the money supply via Quantitive Easing or QE by the Fed, compared to borrowing the money from the Chinese?

      Is there no shame with Obama and his staff, do they not know they are giving the tax payers the shaft, when you leave open the door to illegal aliens, more money pours out of the seniors pocket to pay for medicare and medicaid, printing more money will bankrupt the country and cause a colapse of world markets.We must get our house in order before its too late!

    Big Government Is NOT the Answer

    Your tax dollars are being spent on programs that we really don't need.
