Why Federal Spending Must Be Reformed

You often hear El Growler Grande repeating the slogan, “It’s the spending!” The following chart from the Peter G. Peterson Foundation confirms that it is indeed the spending that needs reforming, not the need for more taxes. The source of the data for the chart is “the Congressional Budget Office, The Long‐Term Budget Outlook: June 2010, alternative. Compiled by PGPF.”Arlington County taxpayers concerned about the need to reform federal spending may want to take a few minutes to voice those concerns to their elected eminences on Capitol Hill. Better yet, write to them using the links below:

  • Senator Jim Webb (D) -- write to him or call (202) 224-4024
  • Senator Mark Warner (D) -  write to him or call (202) 224-2023
  • Representative Jim Moran (D) -- write to him or call (202) 225-4376.
