Social Issue are Economic Issues

To all of those who would like to focus the discussion away from social issues, I offer this reminder.  As long as the Federal government is involved, social issues are economic issues.  Our current deficit and debt are at least partially the result of social programs.  Outside of national defense, border, or trade policies, identify one government program that does not at its core address social or domestic issues.  Do not be mislead, bringing social programs into the upcoming budget debate is entirely appropriate and absolutely necessary.  If the Federal government spends one dime on a social issue, the American people should have the opportunity to determine whether they support that program.  Social Security, health care, Planned Parenthood, or any other pet program cannot be exempt from scrutiny.  It is our “Great Society” which has brought us to this point in our history.
