The Balanced Budget Counter Argument Farce

The Balanced Budget Amendment according to the ever-liberal Washington Post,
A balanced-budget amendment would deprive policymakers of the flexibility they need to address national security and economic emergencies.
To that I say, if governing requires the flexibility to deficit spend at any time, with no restriction, then government is broken.  And soon, it will be broke.

To argue it's anti-Democratic because it's restrictive is insane. It sets boundaries - something Congress won't do for itself.


  1. "It sets boundaries - something Congress won't do for itself." - Exactly, the inmates are running the asylum.

  2. Right, so the only way to take back control of the asylum is by creating enforceable rules. Sadly, they even see the Constitution as pliable, so hope is slim.


Disagreement is always welcome. Please remain civil. Vulgar or disrespectful comments towards anyone will be removed.
