Trump, Hillary to Spend More, Johnson Promises Balanced Budget

“Clinton would increase spending by $1.45 trillion over ten years, from 22.1 to 22.7 percent of GDP.” Under Trump, spending would increase “from 22.1 to 22.5 percent of GDP.”

Up is up, and everyone pays for it in some way.

From Johnson/Weld:

Governor Johnson has pledged that his first major act as President will be to submit to Congress a truly balanced budget. No gimmicks, no imaginary cuts in the distant future. Real reductions to bring spending into line with revenues, without tax increases. No line in the budget will be immune from scrutiny and reduction. And he pledges to veto any legislation that will result in deficit spending, forcing Congress to override his veto in order to spend money we don’t have.

This is a normal economic plan. Reduce government outlays and keep resources in the private sector.
