Roy Blunt speaks to Cape Girardeau Chamber of Commerce

Senator Roy Blunt is on a tour of Southeast Missouri Chambers of Commerce, including a stop Thursday night in Cape Girardeau. He focused much of the evening slamming the national budget deficit. 

Blunt criticized the federal government for running up an additional 3 trillion dollars in debt in just the last two years, and voiced his concern at this pattern of government spending.

"It's only the government from the local school board to the capital of the United States where you don't care as much as you did the year before because you didn't spend as much money as you did last year. Nobody else feels that way," Blunt said.

Senator Blunt says that he hopes to come up with some budget cuts to help ease deficit spending. He made no specific recommendations except to return spending levels to those that existed in 2008.
