When I first joined Congress, I knew we had a debt problem and I knew that we spent way too much money. The numbers are almost overwhelming. Billions and trillions of dollars are not something that any ordinary person can relate to. Luckily, I was a high school teacher before I came to Washington. As a teacher, I had to make things understandable for my students in the classroom. I knew that there was an easier way to explain the budget to the people that sent me to Washington. I made this video to discuss the way the sequester effects the budget.
