Lately I have started receiving a periodic newsletter from Sen. Patty Murray. When talking about her priorities, she says a great deal about what she will do but not once is a specific action mentioned.

Amazingly, none of her priorities include the biggest danger facing the country – the magnitude of the national debt, now in excess of $13 trillion dollars and growing by leaps and bounds.

Among her accomplishments, she lists nothing but what she has spent money on. Nowhere is mentioned savings or fiscal responsibility. Can the country afford her as a senator?
