A small group of Escambia County Republicans gathered Friday afternoon to greet U.S. Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., at the Hourglass.
Sessions addressed the growing problems with the national deficit.
“The president deserves criticism,” Session said. “He has failed to lead efficiently and has failed to tell the American people of the threat our debt is to this country.”
Session cited a growing debt is the product of overspending and continued borrowing that has put the nation’s well being at risk.
“I’m worried about it,” Sessions said of the debt. “When you don’t know what to do, you do what we did back in Hebert, Ala. You pay your bills, if you don’t have money, you don’t spend. You don’t go out to eat often.”
Sessions said the deficit continues to grow by billions of dollars each day.
“At this point we are adding $4 billion a day to our debt,” Sessions said.
Sessions commended his fellow Alabamians for their values and continued support.
“There are good people raised on good values in Alabama,” Sessions said. “We represent common sesne in Washington. Corporate America is lean and will respond efficiently.”
Sessions did say he had confidence in the resilience of the American people to overcome the hurdles that are in place now and in the future of the country. “I am confident in the capabilities and ingenuity of the American people,” Sessions said. “I know we will come out of this.”
