Government Spending
Control Spending and Balance the Budget
"Our federal government is out of control. The future of our Republic depends on our ability and willingness to control federal spending. We've got to stop the outrageous spending in Washington, pay down the debt, and balance the budget."

Reducing spending is not merely reducing the rate of growth in spending. We must actually reduce spending and then apply those savings to debt reduction! And we need a constitutional amendment to require a balanced budget.

I have authored the strongest Balanced Budget Amendment before Congress. Here's what makes my amendment different:

Requires a 2/3 majority to raise taxes and to deficit spend.
Limits spending increases to population growth plus inflation.
Allows waivers only during wars officially declared by Congress.
Requires that any surplus be returned to taxpayers.
See the Home Page for details on my Four Way Test for all legislation and my record on fiscal issues.

Will you stand with me to control spending and balance the budget? - See more at:
