Warren Buffett’s Financial Plan To Eliminate America’s Debt: ‘I Can End the Deficit in 5 Minutes’

Warren Buffett, the world's most successful investor and businessman, is no stranger to voicing his thoughts on numerous economic and fiscal concerns.

Buffett presented a novel idea for addressing America's ongoing deficit in an interview with Becky Quick on CNBC."I could end the deficit in five minutes," Buffett said.

You just enact legislation stating that whenever the deficit exceeds 3% of GDP, all incumbent members of Congress are ineligible for reelection."

A 2011 comment that has been making the rounds on X (previously Twitter), feeling more relevant than ever in today's inflation and debt-ridden economic climate 

 a climate that will be a major talking point in next year's 2024 Presidential elections — and perhaps taking a few pointers from Mr. Buffett here will be the way to sway the polls.

Buffett's proposal is fundamentally about accountability. Current members of Congress would be incentivized to keep the deficit under 3% of GDP or risk losing their reelection bid. 

This rule would make lawmakers more accountable for economic policy, as their political destiny would be determined by their ability to manage the nation's debt.

Buffett's plan mainly relies on the force of incentives. By tying reelection to the country's economic health, MPs would be encouraged to emphasize fiscal restraint, encouraging long-term sustainability over short-term political benefit.
