The Budget process in Washington is completely broken. The process is so convoluted that the citizens have no real idea how their tax dollars are being spent, or even if funding for a specific program is going up or down. Beltway power brokers count on this confusion and fight any changes that would make the process clearer and more honest.
Solution: The Senate must not be allowed to shirk its responsibility to actually create a budget. I will work to end the baseline budgeting standards which rewards waste and bloating. I will use the real numbers so that we can stop the shadowy budget process that allows career politicians and powerful insiders to hide the spending that has driven us more than $17 trillion in debt.
