Jason Smith on Budget & Economy

 

  
 


Support Balanced Budget Amendment, like 49 states out of 50

When your family sits down to plan its budget, it has to live within its means. Congress should too. Unfortunately we are making the equivalent of $25,000 a year and spending $38,000 every year. That's not even counting the over $160,000 that have been put on our credit cards.

The solution is simple. Congress must make the tough decisions to balance its own budget. In the seven years that I have been a State Representative, we have crafted and passed a balanced budget every year. Washington should too.

I would support a Balanced Budget Amendment to the Constitution. 49 of the 50 states already have them. Washington must stop the chronic over-spending; the only way to do that is by balancing its budget.
