Rep. John Shadegg (AZ) has done a great job with new media and blogging during the 111th Congress. He is so on top of it that he already has a post on the newly unveiled "Fox Nation" -- a social networking and participant oriented website published by Fox News.
Shadegg's first post, "Will we be known as the 'reckless generation'?", touches on the debt our current budget will puport onto our children and grandchildren. How will we save them from our lack of discipline? Here's an excerpt:
It’s time to stop mortgaging our children’s future and time to start building them a better tomorrow. We cannot let history record that we were the “Reckless Generation.”
But, if we are not careful, the legacy of our generation will be very different. If we follow the course set forth in Washington by Democrats’ stunning budget proposal, we will shirk our responsibilities to our children and grandchildren, burying our nation in an avalanche of debt.
The Democrats’ budget proposal will double the national debt in five years and triple it in ten! Our nation’s debt will increase to more than 82% of our nation’s entire GDP by the last year of the budget. We are talking year after year of record spending, record taxes, and record deficits.
