And not in the good way, either. Here it is:
I support a balanced budget amendment that:
Requires that the federal budget be balanced each year unless 3/5ths of each House (60 votes in the Senate) vote to waive.
Requires the President to submit a budget each year that is balanced.
Would be waived when the U.S. is in a declared time of war.
Would create a Social Security lockbox that protects the revenue and outlays of Social Security from any balanced budget requirement.
Would prohibit Congress from providing income tax breaks for people earning over $1 million a year, unless we are running surpluses (those surpluses must also not be eliminated if such a tax break were enacted).
No, no, no, no, no, no, no. No more ways for the GOP to hold the budget hostage. No super-majorities in the House. And what about Medicare? No, no, no.
Every hear of Keynes, Sen. Udall? He was way smarter than you about these matters.
Here is the contact page. Let him have it.
Be gentle - he did lead the fight against indefinite detention of Americans in the recent Defense budget bill.
