Senator Jim DeMint – (R-SC) is working with millions of Patriots to bring about a Balanced Budge Amendment, whereby the United States Government is forced to treat our hard earned dollars as if they were their own and spend accordingly Not One American Thought To Get Through The Crash Of 2008 By Spending More, The Federal Government Did

Despite our nation’s staggering $14.4 trillion debt, the Obama Administration and the Democratic leadership in the Congress want to raise our nation’s debt limit without any spending cuts or reforms.

We believe that this is a fiscally irresponsible position that would place America on the Road to Ruin. At the same time, we believe that the current debate over raising the debt limit provides a historic opportunity to focus public attention, and then public policy, on a path to a balanced budget and paying down our debt.

We believe the Republican Study Committee’s “Cut, Cap, Balance” plan for substantial spending cuts in FY 2012, a statutory spending cap, and the passage of a Balanced Budget Amendment to the Constitution is the minimum necessary precondition to raising the debt limit. The ultimate goal is to get us back to a point where increases in the debt limit are no longer necessary.

The beauty of such an Amendment would be the reigning in of dollars that are used against the will of a majority of Americans. It would be impossible for the Federal Government to continue allotments of tax dollars for Planned Parenthood, National Public Radio, or groups such as LaRaza Why Are We Funding “The Race”, In The First Place?. The Susan B Anthony pro-life group is working hard as well to get Republican candidates to sign on to stop the government from funding abortions, both here and abroad and each candidate has signed on except Mitt Romney and Herman Cain, now I am very pro-life but I believe that Herman Cain has been consistent on his stance One Does Not Need To Sign The SBA Pledge To Be Pro-Life, though Mr. Romney has not, so I am un-surprised by his refusing to sign the pledge. The issue would be put to rest with a Balanced Budget Amendment, because there would be no “extra” cash lying around for such liberal causes. the Federal Government would be forced to take care of those things they have committed to, such as Social Security, Medi-care and the one thing they are Constitutionally mandated to do, which is fund the Military to protect the United States of America. The biggest winner of a Balanced Budget Amendment would be all Americans who would no longer see wasteful government at work while they struggle to keep their own jobs and houses.

    Americans know it is wrong to take our money in the form of taxes in order to fund abortion. Only the lamebrain left could justify that.

    I think I saw a headline that Romney put out his own pledge on Life. I didn’t bother to read it because his promises all seem to come with expiration dates, similar to Obama’s.

      I would like to think that Romney is telling the TRUTH on his conversion to pro-life, I would hate to think that such a serious issue as killing the un-born could be so cavalierly thrown about by ANY human being. None the less, the Balanced Budget Amendment would take away such concerns and flip flops!

    Yes and no.
    I’m all in for a balanced budget and paying down this ludicris debt. If the government can knock off $1 trillion per year until it’s paid off then I might even live to see it happen. I’m also solidly against abortion and even more against tax dollars paying for abortion.

    However, any time you get trillions of dollars flowing through thousands of agencies controlled by tens of thousands of bureacrats governed by millions of pages of laws, regulations and ‘requirements’ the possibility of totally banning a particular expenditure is vanishingly small.

      Great point about the likelihood of a federal ban. Perhaps the federal (state by state) solution will eventually get the job done. So far I think it is happening in only 3 states. Even there, the judiciary is putting its thumb above the scales of justice, primed and ready to squash the people’s will.

      Which always leads back to cutting the government in HALF & if the Balanced Budget Amendment is tied to REVENUE coming into the government well, a whole hell of a lot of agencies will be gone, about 1.7 trillion dollars worth.
