Alabama Voices - Kay Ivey: It's time to demand a balanced budget

Lt. Governor Kay Ivey

The Alabama Legislature is completing another legislative session, having developed balanced budgets. Difficult decisions had to be made to reach that point, but just like your family's finances, spending can't exceed revenue - a common-sense practice seemingly lost on most in Washington, D.C.


In Alabama, leaders are bound by the state Constitution to balance the state's budget every year. It's time the federal government followed our lead.


That is why I recently pledged my support to Demand Balance Now, a national effort to amplify calls for a balanced budget amendment to the U.S. Constitution through a state-led, limited Article V convention. This historic initiative is being led by statehouses across the nation and is spearheaded nationally by the State Government Leadership Foundation.


Now more than ever, states should hold the federal government accountable for out-of-control national spending.


I hope you'll join the call to end runaway federal spending and balance the budget by signing the pledge to Demand Balance Now:


Here are five reasons why:


1. It's your money. You entrust the federal government with a substantial amount of your hard earned dollars each year and federal spending into oblivion is simply irresponsible. Demand Balance Now and hold Congress responsible for how it spends your money.


2. The national debt is an immediate threat to our country and a burden on our children. It now surpasses $17 trillion and is growing by the day. Demand Balance Now so our children don't have to pay the price later.


3. It's a solid step in the right direction. It will take more than a balanced budget amendment to get our economy completely back on track, including right-sizing government and cutting wasteful spending like we have done in Alabama, but it would create a spending threshold for Congress. Demand Balance Now to get America's economy heading in the right direction.


4. Congress isn't acting on it. Alabama is fortunate to have several excellent representatives in Washington, but a divided Congress has created gridlock on many fiscal issues. Demand Balance Now to join Alabama's strong conservative voices in Congress so the rest of Washington hears our call.


5. If it works for Alabamians; it should work for Washington. When Alabama families face hard times, they tighten the purse strings. Demand Balance Now to apply the same rules of family budgeting to the federal government.


Kay Ivey is lieutenant governor of Alabama.
