Press Release

Congressman Joe Wilson (SC-02) released the following statement after joining the bipartisan Balanced Budget Amendment Caucus to fight the culture of overspending in Washington and to restore fiscal sanity to the federal government:

 

“America’s national debt stands at $14.2 trillion and the current year’s deficit is estimated to be $1.5 trillion. The only way to avoid financial ruin is with a Constitutional Amendment that requires both Congress and the president to be held accountable to taxpayers.

Millions of Americans across the country are forced to balance their budget and the federal government should be no different. It’s time to stop the reckless, out-of-control spending sprees in Washington and replace them with policies that put the federal government’s finances in order.”

 

The Balance Budget Amendment Caucus is a bipartisan group of Members of Congress dedicated to developing and championing a measure that would mandate a balanced federal budget. Founded by Congressman Mike Coffman (R-CO), its website can be found by clicking here.
