WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Senator Richard Burr was our guest today at WWAY and we invited you to ask the Senator questions. Not surprisingly many questions centered on Washington’s inability to get our economy working and the subsequent national credit down grade.

Senator Burr said it all comes down to our national debt. “Make no mistake about it we’ve got a long term debt in this country that far exceeds any other country in the world. We run an annual deficit of 1.5 trillion dollars. You have to understand how severe that is and that no country can over come that. That’s the challenge for us.”

The Senator said we must reform Medicare and he will introduce a new Medicare reform package next month.
