Rep. Jim Jordan: ‘We’ve Got a $32 Trillion Debt, Everything Has to Be on the Table’
JORDAN: "Well, Shannon, we got a $32 trillion debt. Everything has to be on the table. We are on pace to spend 500, $600 billion in debt payments just to deal with interest payments on servicing that debt. Everything has to be on the table. And frankly, maybe if we would focus our military spending on the soldiers and not having so many general — the ratio of general officers to enlisted individuals now is so out of whack from where it used to be in our military. Maybe if would focus on that, helping the troops who do so much the work out there for our great country, and maybe focus on getting rid of all the woke policies in our military, we would have the money we need to make sure our troops get the pay raise they deserve, we'd have the weapon systems and the training that needs to be done so we are ready to deal with our adversaries on the planet. That is what we want to focus on. But you got numbers like that, a 30-some trillion dollar debt, and interest payments to service that debt where they’re headed this year, you had better look at everything. And frankly, we better look at the money we send to Ukraine, as well, and say, how can we best spend the money to protect America? I think that's what the people elected us to do. That's what we're going to do."
