Duffy Calls For Balanced Budget Amendment

Apr 12, 2018Press Release

Washington DC – Wisconsin Congressman Sean Duffy, Chairman of the Financial Services Subcommittee on Housing & Insurance, today released a following statement in support of adding a Balanced Budget Amendment to the Constitution:

 

“Under President Obama, our national debt became an economic and national security crisis. Reforms are needed now to fix this broken-down budget process so that future generations of Americans aren’t saddled with this incredible federal debt. We also must ensure that America’s future is not held hostage by Senate Democrats each time they demand a spending spree with taxpayer dollars. I fully support a Balanced Budget Amendment so that we address the federal deficit and spare our children and grandchildren an unpayable national debt.”

 

NOTE:

 

Today’s vote failed the 2/3 threshold needed for a Constitutional Amendment, 233-184.
