Make English the National or Official Language of the US

Too much money is being wasted on dual/multiple language answering machines, printing, etc. Some commercial establishments are going to the point of having 10-13 languages on printed things. The government cannot afford the cost or lack of efficiency. It is time to make English the national language and the ability to speak and understand English at at least an 8th grade level should be a citizenship requirement. It is a common language that brings a country together, makes it strong and gives it unity. No one is saying you can't speak a native language at home but the official language of business and commerce in the US should be English.
