Government Shutdown Is “Not The End of the World” says Presidential Candidate Ryan Binkley

Generational Group CEO and presidential candidate Ryan Binkley is running for president because career politicians are mishandling the economy, including this week’s looming government shutdown.

“The time to work on this budget was not this week, and it wasn’t two weeks ago. It was about a year ago, and that’s what leadership does. It starts working on things in advance for the health of our country. and that’s the way I would lead as president,” Binkley said in this video recorded from his campaign headquarters.

“What’s going to happen if we don’t come up with a budget or do a continuing resolution by October 1? We temporarily shut the country down until we come up with an agreement. The best option is to actually work together. I think everybody can come up with a compromise to get this done. If not, the government could be shut down for a little bit. Is that the end of the world? In 2018, it was shut down for 36 days. It’s not the end of the world.”

Binkley said Congress can avoid another fiscal crisis by reforming the budget process, as described in his 7-Year Economic RESCUE plan to balance the budget in seven years. The plan will eliminate programs that are inefficient and invest in those that are providing a return. It will reduce non-defense discretionary spending; prevent waste, fraud, and abuse; and save Social Security for generations to come. 

Binkley is co-founder and CEO of the mergers and acquisitions firm Generational Group and co-founder and lead pastor of Create Church, both in the Dallas area. Under Binkley’s leadership, Generational Group has grown to nearly 400 employees through 16 offices in North America and has sold over 8 billion dollars’ worth of businesses.
