cnn.com — The financial situation facing the country dominated the first part of Wednesday's GOP presidential debate.

The financial situation is a major problem that must be addressed, former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani said at the start of the debate.

Rep. Duncan Hunter of California called the budget deficit and the trade loss a threat to national security.

Texas Rep. Ron Paul agreed, saying, "It's absolutely a threat to our national security because we spent too much, we taxed too much, we borrowed too much, and we print too much."

Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney said the best answer for economic woes is to "make sure we have good jobs for our citizens, good schools for our kids, good health care for everyone and that we have policies that promote the growth of the nation."

The debate, sponsored by The Des Moines Register and Iowa Public Television, marks the last time the GOP presidential hopefuls will appear on the same stage before the crucial Iowa caucuses on January 3.
