Congressman Bill Cassidy, M.D., today reaffirmed his support for the Balanced Budget Amendment. This amendment would require Congress to produce a balanced budget every fiscal year.
"The Balanced Budget Amendment is a critical tool for controlling federal spending. Washington is spending far more than it takes in, and our national debt is pulling down our economy.
"Balanced Budget Amendments have worked at the state level, including in Louisiana. A national amendment will shield America from runaway spending and excessive deficits. Most importantly, it will generate confidence in job creators and boost our economy."
