Government needs to live within its means. As Americans, we must do this each and every day of our lives, out of necessity. No matter what your political stripe or party affiliation, we are expected to be responsible with what we have. The same standards should be held to our government. I therefore support and will fight for a strong and effective Balanced Budget Amendment to the U.S. Constitution that ensures the fiscal solvency of the U.S. Treasury without passing trillions of dollars of public debt down to the next generations of Americans.
