A Record of Fiscal Responsibility.
Lincoln Chafee is no stranger to fiscal responsibility. He’s balanced budgets at the local, state, and federal level. When the State of Rhode Island wanted to waste millions, he was the only one to stand up against the crooked cronyism of the 38 Studios deal.
He left his old party over its reckless deficit spending, and was elected Governor as an Independent, standing up against crooked cronyism and managing Rhode Island’s finances successfully during the Great Recession.
The enormous deficit is one of the greatest threats to this, and future generation’s economic vitality. The truth is, our spending is out of control. Sooner or later, the bill for the outrageous expenditures and waste of our bloated Federal budget will come due.
As a Mayor, a Governor and a Senator, Lincoln Chafee knows what it takes to balance budgets and make the right decisions.
As President, Lincoln Chafee will tackle the deficit head on, by eliminating expenditures that go beyond the federal government’s enumerated powers under the Constitution, and by ending the senseless wars whose cost can not only be measured by the billions, but by tragedy and lost human lives.
It's time for a change, and it starts with telling the TRUTH.
