The rapid growth of the national debt alarmed some politicians and created pressure for restricting Congress’s unlimited ability to spend. Discuss the actions taken by Congress (legislation passed) since 1985 to reduce the budget deficits.
Use scholarly sources to support the current debate between the White House and Congress regarding what measures are necessary to address spending and revenues (e.g., news reports, official statements, press conferences, as well as numerous government websites).
Write a two- to three-page paper (not including title and reference pages), using at least three scholarly sources, including the textbook. The paper must be formatted according to APA style.
