If Senator Bob Corker is serious about fiscal responsibility and debt reduction, he could lead the way
on a federal balanced budget amendment:
Democrats and those on the Left are good at raising taxes to deal with problems as though simply making the public pay more money to the government will solve our debt problem. The country needs to face hard truths and so does the Obama Administration, and the first truth is that we need to take a hard and painful look at how much money the federal government spends. Tennessee's Constitution requires a balanced budget. Perhaps the federal Constitution needs to be amended to hold the federal government to the same standard. If Bob Corker wants to make a lasting impact on history with his Senate tenure, perhaps he can lead the charge for a balanced budget amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
