Perdue’s not a deficit hawk, he’s a chicken

When he was first running for the Senate in 2014, Perdue constantly emphasized the need to reduce the deficit and ease the burden of debt on our grandchildren. "The crushing national debt has surpassed $17 trillion," Perdue said at the time. "We must act now to rein it in before it becomes unsustainable."
