To the Editor,

Governmental debt denotes today’s lust to consume without regard for tomorrow. Think about it. We have become dependent on the government for way too much which has resulted in our generation having spent our children’s income and inheritance. Think beyond today. Dependence on government leaves us — and our children — dependent on unreliable governmental programs, which remove… “the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our Posterity.” When Chris Christie became governor of New Jersey he said, “We can’t start pro-growth polices until we get our fiscal house in order.”

Two years ago that was the case here in Michigan, but thankfully voters changed course and elected fiscally-responsible legislators, like Nancy Jenkins. She and others in the Michigan House of Representatives were handed a problem and they set about fixing it.

Do you know what Nancy Jenkins has done for citizens of Lenawee County? She helped turn around our state government from being fiscally irresponsible with a deficit of over $1 billion, to one that has a $457 million surplus. (NY Times “Surplus Surprises Michigan, but Is It Safe to Spend Again?” by Monica Davey).
Jenkins does not want a government that over-taxes, over-spends, over-borrows and over-regulates. She wants a government that controls its limits and limits its control.

Let’s show our support for fiscal responsibility by voting to send Nancy Jenkins back to Lansing so she can continue the good work she has begun. She doesn’t just care about the present; she cares about the future.
