These United States suffer from an economic affliction of great proportions
The worst sustained inflation in our national history
It distorts our economic decisions, penalizes thrift, and crushes the struggling young and the fixed-income elderly alike

Government is not the solution to our problem
Government is the problem
But for only a limited time
But for only a limited time

These United States threatens to shatter the lives of millions of our people
Unemployment, human misery, personal indignity penalizes full achievement
Government is the problem
But for only a limited time

Were going to act, beginning today
They will go away, beginning today
Were going to act, beginning today
They will go away

For decades, we have piled deficit upon deficit, mortgaging our future and our children's future for the temporary convenience of the present.
To continue this long trend
Guarantee tremendous social, cultural, political, and economic upheavals

You and I, You and I,
live beyond our means,
You and I, You and I,
live beyond our means,

As a nation, were not bound by that same limitation
We must act today in order to preserve tomorrow
Let there be no misunderstanding
For only a limited time

Were going to act, beginning today
They will go away, beginning today
Were going to act, beginning today
They will go away

We have the capacity to do whatever needs to be done to preserve this last bastion of freedom.

Government is not the solution to our problem
Government is the problem
But for only a limited time
Government is the problem.
For only a limited time
Government is the problem
