Our federal government is completely out of control. The future of our Republic depends on our ability and willingness to get federal spending under control. We’ve simply got to stop the outrageous spending in Washington, pay down the debt, and balance the budget.
Reducing spending is much more than just reducing its rate of growth. We need to actually slash spending and then apply those savings to debt reduction! And we need a Constitutional Amendment to require a balanced budget.
I authored the strongest Balanced Budget Amendment before Congress. Here’s what made my amendment different:
Requires a 2/3 majority to raise taxes and to deficit spend.
Limits spending increases to population growth plus inflation.
Allows waivers only during wars officially declared by Congress.
Requires that any surplus be returned to taxpayers.
