Play Video

Every American already owes more than $56,000 and the debt keeps climbing. WMC President and CEO Kurt Bauer explains why political and cultural causes may be to blame for Washington’s inability to drive down the debt. Hear from U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wisconsin) and U.S. Rep. Glenn Grothman (R-Campbellsport).

“If you’re just paying money on interest on the debt you don’t have the money to invest in education, in schools, in basic infrastructure to grow your economy.”
– Sen. Ron Johnson
