Mike: Let us go to the Dude Maker Hotline and say hello to one of the triad of candidates for the United States Senate for the 2014 elections that I personally know. This is Dwayne Stovall, TexansForStovall.com. Hello, Dwayne Stovall. How you doing?
Dwayne Stovall: How are you, Mike?
Mike: Good, thank you. How’s the campaign going?
Stovall: Very well, actually, very well. It’s amazing when you speak in very plain terms about things like you’re talking about, the debt ceiling, that people are so ready for someone to stop playing that game. I’m just fed up with it myself. If you’ve got simple math skills and you were to tally up the debt servicing numbers and the military numbers, without cutting the military, and you were to add up the Department of Health and Social Security and welfare entitlement programs and put them all together, they’re still about $300 billion shy of what we take in in general revenue. It’s all the expanse of government that’s the issue. We can fund ourselves on what we’re required to pay for. Everybody is scared to death by the rhetoric.
Mike: Are you scared to death because of the rhetoric?
Stovall: No. I’m ready to say no.
Mike: You just heard Senator Coburn say: We’re not going to default on any of this. We’re going to pay the debt and everybody knows we’re going to pay the debt. If you were elected to replace Senator Cornyn in the U.S. Senate and you had a vote on a CR that included a bump in the debt ceiling, how would you approach it?
Stovall: I would say no. It’s simple. We’re at the point now, what are you saying yes to, that we’ll fix it next time? They’ve been saying that my entire life. We’ll let the next Congress do it. We’ll make a plan next time. No, we’re not going to do that anymore. As far as I’m concerned, it’s time to say no. Go ahead and divest all those unconstitutional powers back to the states. Let the states decide to keep them or get rid of them or do whatever they want with them. Say no more on the debt ceiling. I get a kick out of those technical discussions with President Obama when he says raising the debt ceiling doesn’t necessarily raise the debt. That’s pretty disingenuous in itself. We all know it increases the debt. The idea that we’re going to raise the debt and work on the problem later, I think history has proven that to be a complete joke.
