The following is a statement from Dr. Jo Jorgensen, Libertarian Party candidate for President.
"Federal debt is now equal to 98% of the economy. It will soon exceed the record levels achieved during WW2. And the future unfunded liabilities for Social Security and Medicare are even worse.
But Trump and Biden both want to borrow ever-increasing amounts. Both men claim that federal borrowing can stimulate the economy to compensate for the harm done by COVID-19 policies.
The presidential debate needs an alternative view. I can provide that.
I want to point out that the greatest economic recovery in U.S. history happened AFTER congress made the largest spending cuts ever. That happened following WW2. Everyone predicted a return to the Great Depression, but they were wrong. America boomed!
That's what I offer the American people - a booming economy with less government debt. And if that's what people want, voting for me is the only way they can get it."
