Calls for stepped up action to manage the deficit and debt
Plymouth, Minnesota – While the impeachment distraction comes to a close, the nation’s budget deficit continues to climb at alarmingly high rates, with no clear end in sight. According to the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office, the 2019 deficit will exceed $1 trillion, with the number expected to widen each year for the next decade.
“With each day that passes, we are witnessing a crippling problem for future generations with unprecedented high deficits, and an overwhelming national debt of over $22 trillion left for our children and grandchildren. Strong leaders don’t pass along problems. Leaders provide solutions, develop a consensus and take action to resolve the problem. That’s what I plan to accomplish after voters make their decision in November,” said Qualls.
When elected, Qualls plans to bring his experiences as a successful businessman to tackle the fiscal challenges facing our federal government. As a self-described “poor black kid from Harlem” Qualls was raised by a hard-working, single mother and then later in life raised by his father in Oklahoma, a career solider in the U.S. Army.
“I have had the opportunity to work for large Fortune 100 companies as well as startup companies with budget responsibilities in the hundreds of millions of dollars. Over the course of my 30-year career, I have had to work and earn the respect and trust of senior executives, peers and subordinates to achieve results, balance budgets and create a positive environment that sustains future growth. America’s families, businesses and non-profits must prioritize, make tough spending decisions and operate with fiscal responsibility, and so should our federal government,” commented Qualls.
As the future Representative for the Third District of Minnesota, Qualls is committed to addressing this fiscal crisis. “I am ready and willing to tackle the rising deficits and debt head-on, and avoid the fiscal catastrophe that awaits families, businesses and future generations of the Third District and Minnesota,” concluded Qualls.
