DUFFY SIGNS ONTO BALANCED BUDGET AMENDMENT
WASHINGTON, DC — U.S. Congressman Sean Duffy issued the following statement after co-sponsoring the Balanced Budget Amendment:
“Congress must learn what every working family and small business in Central and Northwestern Wisconsin has known for a painfully long time: the path forward to a sustainable and prosperous future is paved by fiscal responsibility and smaller, smarter government.
“One of the most commonsense measures we can enact is a balanced budget amendment which simply dictates that the federal government must live within its means. This is a lesson well-learned by the hardworking citizens of Wisconsin and there’s no reason why Washington should live by different rules than Wausau, Chippewa Falls or Rice Lake.
“As with most great endeavors, a fiscally responsible government will not be achieved overnight or with one fell swoop. But this legislation is an important step in the right direction. By passing this amendment, the Congress will send a clear message to not only our constituents, but to the global community that the United States is committed to putting its fiscal house in order—and I’m proud to co-sponsor it.”
