WASHINGTON – Today, U.S. Senator Johnny Isakson, R-Ga., joined 44 of his Senate colleagues in introducing a Balanced Budget Amendment to the Constitution to bring much-needed fiscal discipline back to Washington.
“The federal government cannot continue to go down the dangerous path of trillion dollar deficits that threaten our children’s and grandchildren’s futures,” said Isakson. “Families and small businesses in every corner of our country have had to make tough decisions to prioritize their spending and live within their means, and the federal government should have to do the same. I’m proud to join my colleagues again in co-sponsoring this critically important amendment to help address our country’s current fiscal crisis.”
Isakson has supported similar measures in the past to rein in spending and reduce America’s debt.
