Fiscal Cheat Sheet: Uncertainty & Lack of Confidence
Get the latest intel on Washington's fiscal woes.Close
This week is “Fiscal Cheat Sheet” week at Bankrupting America. Each day, we’ll release a fact sheet that breaks down a core theme surrounding the urgent, but long-standing, problem of government overspending.
On Tuesday, we asked the question, “Is this Responsible Governing?”
Yesterday, we looked at key issues of Washington’s long-standing culture of Unsustainable Spending.
In today’s Uncertainty & Lack of Confidence, we’ll discuss how Americans’ fear of what Washington will do next is further impeding an economic recovery:
No Ability for Businesses to Plan
Families and Companies Afraid to Act

Consequences (national): Americans are becoming increasingly aware that Washington’s fiscal recklessness has consequences, and these consequences are growing exponentially worse with every day policymakers fail to get our nation’s fiscal house in order:
Higher Taxes, Higher Cost of Living
Dampened Economic Growth, Fewer Job Opportunities
Crushing Burden on Future Generations
And looking forward to next week…
Consequences (state): National consequences paint just part of the picture of government overspending; state-level consequences are just as devastating – and often more personal. On Friday, we’ll receive yet another likely disappointing unemployment report. Bankrupting America will take a look at the report and the policies that have been the backdrop for the bleak jobs situation.
