On Wednesday, Lindsey did an interview with a Charleston radio station, WTMA. It was excellent. I highly suggest you listen to it. He said everything I wanted to hear.
On Thursday he did another interview.
“…Graham was one of 26 Senators who voted against the debt limit compromise bill. He said the measure had some things he liked, such as cutting spending without raising taxes, but felt it didn’t do enough to stop federal spending.
“This deal missed a golden opportunity,” Graham said. “It [the bill] doesn’t reduce the size of government, it just slows [its] growth, and it really does put a lot of pressure on the defense department…It doesn’t change the reason we got in debt.”
The senator said to fix America’s long range economic problems, all items must be on the table, including Social Security, Medicaid, and Medicare.
“I think what you see here is America is an unsound economy,” he said. “The housing market has not stabilized, but the problem of Western nations is that we have an aging population, smaller workforce, and we made promises we can’t afford. The promises we made to Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security are unsustainable.”
