One way to reduce our national debt is to go back to the Public Works Assistance program. Just don't hand out welfare or unemployment benefits, make the people earn them. No earn, no benefits.
They can clean up along highways, cut and mow empty lots, clean up alleyways, clean out ditches and sewer drains and so forth.
Another way is stop trying to take care of the world and start here at home by bringing jobs back to America. Do not have so many stupid restrictions and laws against businesses as we have in Illinois.
