Lally Discusses Issues On SOA

Republican congressional candidate Todd Lally says he believes voters are worried about the growing national debt and will elect leaders next month who will take more decisive action to curb federal spending.Lally spoke Thursday on WFPL's "State of Affairs" program."We are now carrying $14 trillion of debt, we have never carried that much debt as a nation. It would be one thing to have that much debt but getting strict on spending, but we're not getting strict on spending. We're continuing to spend money that we don't have and our debt is almost 100 percent of our GDP," he said.Lally, a UPS pilot and Lt. Colonel in the Air National Guard, is challenging 3rd District Democratic incumbent John Yarmuth. Yarmuth will appear on the program next week.
