Amendment needed to restrain federal spending
constiution 2

From Indy Star June 18, 2014

Some are saying that state legislatures banding together and working toward a balanced budget amendment to the U.S. Constitution will open the convention to other issues. This need not be. The wording of the resolutions passed in various states can control content. In fact, 32 of the states in the late 1970s and early '80s passed such a resolution; 34 were needed to force a convention. Today, the issue is considerably more critical.


It is not a complicated issue. The amendment would say that, in any fiscal year, the federal government shall not spend more than it takes in (except in case of war or natural disaster). Businesses must live within their income. Families and individuals must. Why do we allow the federal government to relish in the luxury of undisciplined spending?


Congress is unwilling to bridle spending; so why not let the states, working in concert, force the issue and perhaps save the union from bankruptcy?
