Myrick: "We Have to Stop Living on Borrowed Money."

On April 4, Rep. Myrick participated in the Carolina Taxpayer Tea Party in Uptown Charlotte. Joined by hundreds of taxpayers from North and South Carolina, she said that the government must stop running on borrowed money and get spending under control. Click here for the full story.

Last week, Rep. Myrick voted for fiscal responsibility by voting for the Republican Budget Alternative for FY 2010. "How is increasing taxes by $1.5 trillion over ten years, increasing discretionary spending by 8.6 percent, and bringing our total national debt to $17.1 trillion considered a responsible thing to do in this economy?" Rep. Myrick said in a statement. "I voted for a Republican Budget Alternative that controls spending, decreases taxes for families and small businesses, and stops putting trillions of dollars in debt on the shoulders of our children and grandchildren."
