After the Fall: How Will Texas Protect Its Citizens From the National-Debt Crisis? – PO2016

Policy Orientation 2016

Thursday, January 7 • 11:00 a.m.-12:15 p.m.

With the national debt standing at roughly $18 trillion, there will come the time when the ability of the federal government to maintain its current funding to states will lessen or even cease. To avoid a nightmare scenario for Texas when this contraction occurs—and to fulfill the intentions of the Tenth Amendment, and with it, the rightful duties of Texas’ statewide officeholders—an accounting must be made of the amounts, purposes, and conditions governing all federal funds to the state presently. The panelists will propose measures to accomplish this purpose.

The Honorable Susan Combs, Principal, Texans for Positive Economic Prosperity
Rep. Matt Krause, Texas House of Representatives

The national debt hit $19 trillion for the first time ever on Friday, and came in at $19.012 trillion.

That's a slightly stepped-up pace compared to the last few $1 trillion mileposts. It took about 14 months for the debt to climb from $17 trillion to $18 trillion, and about the same amount of time to go from $16 trillion to $17 trillion.
