Balanced Budget Amendment
In January 2009, our public debt was $11.9 trillion. Now, it’s more than $18 trillion. Interest payments on the debt now total about $250 billion, the 3rd single biggest item in the federal budget.
We must ratify a Balanced Budget Amendment to the Constitution in order to restore fiscal responsibility to the federal government’s budget.
The career politicians in Washington have demonstrated beyond even a shadow of a doubt that they won’t get serious about balancing the budget and paying down the debt until we MANDATE that it be done by constitutional amendment.
Each generation’s greatest responsibility is to pass on a greater opportunity to the next generation. Our generation is failing in this regard. A Balanced Budget Amendment to our Constitution will lead to a better future for our grandchildren.
