For far too long, Congress has kicked the can of fiscal sustainability down the road for the next generation to deal with. Today, the U.S. Treasury confirmed that the gross U.S. national debt topped $22 trillion for the first time in history. Meanwhile,
OMB recently announced that the White House will once again miss their statutory deadline for submitting a budget proposal to Congress no later than the first Monday in February. The time is now for us to act, and it starts with putting the federal government
on a balanced budget. That is why I encourage you to support my Balanced Budget Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
