Say No To a Balanced Budget Amendment

I dare say that all conservatives favor balanced budgets. However, a Constitutional Amendment would not stop the big spenders in Congress. A BBA WOULD MERELY GIVE THE BIG SPENDERS A CONSTITUTIONAL EXCUSE TO RAISE OUR TAXES EVEN HIGHER. Can you imagine what our taxes would be if Congress had to balance the multi-trillion dollar deficit??? <:-O
NO, THE ANSWER IS TO KICK OUT OF OFFICE THE BIG SPENDERS AND REPLACE THEM WITH FISCAL AND SOCIAL CONSERVATIVES.
Urge Senator Cornyn to not introduce a BBA or any other Amendment to the Constitution. There is nothing wrong with our constitution. The problem is with the White House, the Congress, and the Activist Judiciary.
I am a supporter of the TEA Party movement, but we must carefully weigh our options when it comes to legislation and understand that there is no quick and easy fix to longstanding economic and social erosion.
The Republican Party of Texas Platform Committee removed a Balanced Budget Amendment from the list of Legislative Priorities that was approved at the 2010 RPT convention.
