Veronique de Rugy joins this week’s episode to discuss the national debt, which totals over $26 trillion dollars. As Congress debates more COVID-19 funding packages, we consider the future of our country with an ever-increasing debt and what it will take for Washington to control spending and stick to a budget.

Veronique de Rugy is a Senior Research Fellow at the Mercatus Center at George Mason University and a nationally syndicated columnist. Her primary research interests include the US economy, the federal budget, homeland security, taxation, tax competition, and financial privacy.
