Rep. Buck: Actual national debt is $30 trillion, ‘There’s no conversation’ in D.C. about repaying it

‘This troubles me greatly, but all I see is more spending’ with ‘no conversation in Washington D.C. about how to pay this money back,’ Rep. Buck says

Rep. Ken Buck told Just the News that the national debt is $30 trillion when the actions that the Federal Reserve has taken during the pandemic are factored into the total.

“This troubles me greatly but all I see is more spending. So how high do we get? We are going to continue to spend until the markets say enough is enough and nobody buys the bonds and then we have the cliff that we go off of,” Buck said during an exclusive interview.

The government spent $864 billion more than it took in during June, bringing the deficit to a record $2.7 trillion so far this year.

According to Treasury Department data, the debt held by the public is $20.6 trillion, and the total outstanding national debt is more than $26.5 trillion. 

Buck, author of the new book, “Capitol of Freedom: Restoring American Greatness,” said he wrote the book, in part, because progressive politicians want to take the country in the wrong direction.

“I don’t think that our founding fathers would recognize our political system now,” Buck said. “I think that ‘Capitol of Freedom’ really spells that out because our founding fathers intended to realign the relationship between government and the people and the people are in charge of government and that’s something that didn’t exist before the United States Declaration of Independence and Constitution

“So I hope long before then we act responsibly and dial this back. But the reality is that we are at 30 trillion because we’ve authorized the Fed to engage in, you know, debt, accumulating more debt. And so I think that the spending is one of the largest issues to come out of this COVID. And unfortunately, there’s no conversation in Washington D.C., about how to pay this money back,” he also said.

“This group calls themselves progressives. They are regressives. We are moving backwards. We are moving more and more towards a totalitarian system that existed with a monarchy in Europe or some other country, and it’s just unfortunate, but our founders would see so much of what’s going on now in this country as contrary to what they planned,” he also said. by Nicholas Ballasay from JUSTTHENEWS.COM

The Art of Compromise

We always hear, or at least we used to hear about the art of compromise in politics.  There would be a debate and sides would be established and parameters set. In the end would come a time of give and take and, presto, a consensus would be established and common ground would be achieved.  I am not always in favor of compromise. Sometimes issues are so gravely important that one should stand their ground. Other times compromise provides a great way to give and take and ultimately meet in the middle for the common good.  For example compromise on life issues such as abortion will not happen for me. Spending on the military or amounts to cut from the federal budget are great examples of issues to compromise on. Unfortunately in our day and in the past 40 years the only compromise in Congress usually means conservatives or Republicans are the ones to give.  Democrats are always the takers. Vivid reminder of this is the deal Tip O’Neill and President Reagan worked out to in the 1980’s to cut the federal budget. O’Neil wanted to raise taxes and cut the budget later. Reagan agreed. Taxes went up and the budget was never cut. That my friends is how the Democratic party views compromise.

Never compromise with the enemy.  Are the radical left wingers my enemy, yes if they want to destroy America.  Killing babies up to and including birth, moving us to socialism, doing away with borders, raising taxes to destroy the country, taking our guns away and taking over our health care with medicare for all..making us a European country with death panels, then yes they are my enemy.  

I stand for the Constitution and freedoms that have been fought for.  I believe in the American way of life, nothing more nothing less. I will fight the left wing ideas and never compromise.  God save our republic. God Bless America the land of the free and the home of the brave. Never compromise your God given liberties.  Never ever give up the good fight of faith. Never! Ever!
