Eliminate the National Debt

Community Member kudos icon + Community member

My idea is for the "powers that be" to develop the ability for any monies left in the budget at the end of the year to be applied directly to the National Debt. Meaning that a local office can press a button and the monies go directly to the National Debt, they are not funneled back to parent agencies where the monies will be spent so they don't loose out the following year. Additionally I would like to add that being a good steward of the people's monies, and ending up with a surplus of funds one year, should not hinder that offices funding for the following year. On the simplest level you budget for your needs, and the extra should be applied where needed the National Debt. This idea would eliminate wasteful spending, if you didn't need it for 11 months why now?

I agree to have my idea, not my name or information, posted online. YES
