Support an amendment to the Constitution that would require a balanced budget unless sanctioned by a two-thirds vote in both houses of Congress. As a nation, we must get our budget and debt under control. The Federal deficit is approaching $30 trillion and growing by billions (even trillions) each year. Printing and spending money we don’t have is the biggest contributor to inflation. Families find it difficult to pay for gas and groceries. The problem is that politicians are afraid to be honest with their constituents. These politicians ignore the problem and pass it along to future generations. They pass “take-it-or-shut-down-the-government” spending bills, while refusing to do the hard work of examining every program within the budget. All the while, the financial position of the Nation continues to deteriorate. It is now one of our top national security issues.
