The Push For A Balanced Budget Amendment [AUDIO]
Just this week, the United States overall debt topped $15 trillion dollars. Republicans in the U. S. House of Representatives have been pushing hard for a Balanced Budget Amendment to the Constitution, but they’ve come up short of votes. With the emphasis on deficit reduction in the ‘Super Committee’, Republicans believe the time is right to get that Amendment before the people. Chairman of the Montana Republican Party, Will Deschamps is asking all Montanans to contact their congressional delegation as soon as possible and urge them to pus for a balanced budget amendment. My interview with Mr. Deschamps is attached.
Deschamps asks you to contact Senators Max Baucus and Jon Tester and urge them to make the Balanced Budget Amendment a priority, and to encourage Congressman Denny Rehberg, an original sponsor of the legislation to keep up the effort.
