Congressman Charles W. Boustany, Jr., M.D. (R-South Louisiana) issued the following statement after cosponsoring two Balanced Budget Amendments to the Constitution of the United States on the first day of the 113th Congress. The legislation was introduced by Congressman Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) earlier today:
"As the new Congress begins, I remain committed to cut government spending. The people of South Louisiana are tired of seeing this Administration continuously propose bloated budgets containing trillion dollar deficits every year. The only way to control this Administration's out-of-control spending is for Congress to limit the annual federal budget. These Balanced Budget Amendments put fiscal responsibility at the forefront of the legislative agenda and directly address the resonating fear of Americans across the country: no more deficits."
