U.S. Rep. Howard “Buck” McKeon released a video statement Thursday (viewable above) calling for support of a balanced budget amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
In his written remarks, McKeon said:
“Fifteen years ago, the BBA passed the House with bipartisan support, only to lose by one vote in the Senate. Since then, the debt has grown by $9.2 trillion. The BBA is a game-changer, and fighting for its ratification is the ultimate solution to our nation’s fiscal crisis.
“Every family and business is expected to live and operate within its means, so should the government.
“Passing a balanced budget amendment would help inspire renewed confidence among our nation’s job creators, many of whom are closing their doors and leaving the country for better business environments and taking job opportunities with them.
