House Republicans recently met with 20 young leaders to discuss how Washington’s spending problem, and our rising national debt, are hurting young Americans and threatening future generations.
GOP Conference Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA), Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan(R-WI) and other House Republicans – including Reps. Jaime Herrera Beutler (R-WA), Adam Kinzinger (R-IL), and Aaron Schock (R-IL) – took part in the discussion.
Every American has a $52,000 share of our national debt, which has soared to more than $16 trillion. And according to the Republican Conference, Congressional Budget Office (CBO) analysis shows “each child born in 2010 will have inherited an individual debt responsibility of over $80,000 by 2023.”
As Speaker Boehner said today, “Every family has a stake in this debate” over government spending. Click here to watch the recap of the Millennial Meetup and here to watch the press conference.
