Today U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) cosponsored an amendment to the Senate Democrats' budget proposal with U.S. Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI) that requires any budget resolution considered in the Senate to be balanced by the year 2023. Sen. Cornyn is the lead sponsor of a Balanced Budget Amendment to the Constitution, which all Senate Republicans support.
"We must set effective limits on spending and taxes, and require a balanced budget. Families across Texas have to balance their checkbooks and live within their means, and there is no reason their government should operate any differently."
