Senators Introduce Balanced Budget Amendment

Senators Introduce Balanced Budget Amendment

On Thursday February 14, 2013, U.S. Senators Tim Scott (R-SC) and John Cornyn (R-TX) introduced a Balanced Budget Amendment (BBA) to the United States Constitution.  In a statement released by his office, Senator Scott said “We can’t keep asking American families to foot the bill for reckless spending in Washington, and a Balanced Budget Amendment will ensure a more efficient and effective federal government. States have to balance their budgets and families have to keep their checkbooks in order – it only makes sense the federal government should as well.”

The BBA is supported by national organizations such as Americans for Prosperity, Americans for Tax Reform, Council for Citizens Against Government Waste, National Taxpayers Union, National Federation of Independent Business, and the 60 Plus Association. Additionally Americans for a Balanced Budget is delighted by the introduction of this amendment and commend Senators Scott and Cornyn for their leadership.
