A “balanced budget” amendment to our Constitution, banning Congress from passing a budget that spends more than it takes in, is essential to our nation’s future. To ensure that a wily Congress not raise taxes simply to conform to the amendment, a supermajority (2/3) vote would be required for all future increases on taxes.   James V.

Idea for Balanced Budget Amendment began in The long-term solution to the chronic deficit situation remains the constitutional amendment. It is not a new solution to the chronic deficit situation. While Thomas Jefferson was in Paris negotiating for our new government in , James Madison and others were writing the Constitution. The ad for it says the book “proves why a balanced budget amendment is the only way to rein in spendthrift politicos and cut back government overreach.” I couldn’t disagree more.
