President Trump called for Congress to “choose greatness” for the country in Tuesday’s State of the Union address. He highlighted the many victories achieved by his administration in the past two years and laid out a vision for the future. Heritage has long supported many of these proposals: a national ban on late-term abortion, continuing to rebuild the military, and robust border security. One issue the president failed to address is the nation’s ballooning debt, which stands at $22 trillion amounting to $68,000 for every man, woman, and child in America. Spending is a bipartisan problem.
