Can't just have a debt ceiling showdown, win the battle, and let the next Congress jack up spending and debt another time.


With 130% Debt-To-GDP ratio, and interest payments approaching the number 2nd largest expense in the Federal Budget, with a House Majority (2023-2025) ready to act, need to have real concrete goals:


- Eliminate all unnecessary spending


- Reduce debt-to-GDP ratio to 50%


- Dramatically reduce interest payments


Alexander Hamilton wanted a small, manageable debt and worried of 'crippling interest payments'.


America's enlightened founding fathers do have wisdom to share with newer generations.


"I, however, place economy among the first and most important virtues, and public debt as the greatest of dangers to be feared. To preserve our independence, we must not let our rulers load us with perpetual debt.”


-Thomas Jefferson

With a reputation as a reliable source of government news, reporting on congressional debates of the day, the paper evolved over the years, and finally suspended publication in 1870,

In Scott's 2023 blog of the same name (without Washington Advertiser, etc.), covering business trends, news analysis, and media in 21st Century America. 

With a fly fishing report.
