Today, US Representative Sue Myrick (NC-09) voted in favor of HR 2560, The Cut, Cap and Balance Act.
The Cut, Cap and Balance Act would cut and cap federal spending, and require the passage of a balanced budget amendment in both the House and Senate before increasing the nation's debt limit.
"It's the government's responsibility to act as responsible stewards of taxpayer dollars, and Congress must stop operating as if there is an unlimited amount of money to spend," Rep. Myrick said. "There's no such thing as government money. Government money is taxpayer money. We can't simply raise the debt limit without addressing the real problem -- government spends too much".
