This column - https://tinyurl.com/NYTimeseconomicgrowth - from 2011 is by Catherine Rampell, addressing how to reduce and control the national debt. Her answer is economic growth, which produces more revenue, and makes us less dependent on borrowing. Catherine is described as "a liberal opinion columnist", educated at Princeton. Despite that, she advocated the central message and goal of the American Opportunity Foundation, americanopportunity.org: economic growth.
What a shame the Obama administration didn't listen to Catherine and institute growth policies over the past six years. Read the article, and let's dedicate ourselves to doing the job right, while we have the opportunity. ~ Jim Gilmore (President of American Opportunity)
