Troy Freihammer, Sartell
Our elected officials know that over-indebtedness is the number-one problem facing our nation. However, most of the incumbents prefer to prioritize other hot-button issues.
The national numbers concerning interest payments, deficit spending and the debt itself are so large they tend to silence any serious discussion. The scope and magnitude of the debt problem has almost become incomprehensible to most of us.
We cannot ignore this problem any longer. The consequences of our over-indebtedness are starting to be felt. We all know of family, friends and businesses that are trapped in a web of debt.
Who is addressing the debt problem, and who is ignoring it?
Kurt Bills has made the debt problem his number-one concern. There is no sugar-coating the seriousness of these issues with him. Unlike most of the other candidates, he tells you what you need to hear and explains what needs to be done. He understands if the solvency of our great Republic is questioned, the hot-button issues of today will mean very little tomorrow. Vote for Kurt Bills for United States Senate.
