A fiscally cautious approach would be necessary to erase Government deficits according to one South Dakotacandidate for Congress.
Democrat Paula Hawks recognizes that Federal programs need to be cut to balance the budget. Two such examples immediately come to mind.
“There are some programs that I can think of right off the bat that I would (jettison) such as EB5. This is a program that never should have been reauthorized. Let’s get rid of Gear Up. The goals of the program are worthy, but we have to make sure that we are following through on those goals. If we cannot get the return on investment then that program needs to be overhauled.”
Another stark reality that Hawks envisions would be a long-term approach to cutting spending.
