VIDEO: Rep. Nan Hayworth (R-NY) on Cutting Spending
Conn Carroll /
Wednesday morning Rep. Nan Hayworth (R-NY) took to the floor of the House of Representatives to read a letter from 13 year-old Jeremy Vaitas, a constituent of hers from Middletown, New York. Jeremy wrote:
As a 13 year-old boy in 7th grade I am concerned about my future. Currently the national debt is $14 trillion, $16 billion, $110 million, $552 thousand, $952 dollars, and five cents. My self and every other citizen will have to pay $45,241 to eliminate this debt. My parents struggle with money. And I am afraid that I will struggle even more and not be able to own a home, buy a car, or provide for a family someday. I feel the only way to reduce the national debt is to reduce the amount of money the government is spending.
