Yahoo! News asked voters to pinpoint one single issue they'd like to see addressed at the Republican National Convention. Here are one voter's thoughts.
I believe debt reduction should be discussed at the GOP convention. With my background in accounting and finance, U.S. national debt and lack of a balanced budget concerns me most. We must elect a president and Congress that understand they cannot continue to borrow money from internal or foreign lenders in order to pay for recurring expenses. Keeping some debt is good to secure a good credit rating, but a national debt of $15 trillion and counting is alarming! I, as an individual, live within a budget during the year; why can't government? Stop borrowing (incurring debt), and don't incur expenses greater than revenue in a year. Is this possible now?
