We need a state debt ceiling

Have you noticed in the last couple of weeks that opponents have stopped declaring the Tea Party dead? We are driving the debate on making government smaller and our opponents are now stuck claiming with diminishing credibility that the world will end on August 2 without massive tax increases.

They have had all year to get serious about spending cuts. They had Sen. Rand Paul’s suggested list of $500 billion in cuts, which they said were way too much to even consider. The momentum has clearly shifted and now is the time to pour it on.

Supporting a state debt ceiling is the next step for Kentucky conservatives. Frankfort politicians in both parties are as addicted to spending as Washington D.C. politicians. By all measurements, Kentucky’s state debt is now higher than it has ever been. With our heavy reliance on federal money, we must prepare Frankfort now for cutting way back.

We’re doing our part by holding a Kentucky Debt Limit Town Hall meeting August 2 at 7:00 pm ET in Georgetown at the Scott County Courthouse. Join us if you can. Also, please talk to your representatives about sponsoring legislation to limit Kentucky’s indebtedness. Let’s strike while the iron is hot!

If you would like to support the effort, please consider making a donation to the Kentucky Knows Best PAC. Individuals may contribute up to $1500 per year, but any amount will help. Thank you for all that you do.
