Even if it were going somewhere.. it wouldn’t matter because any such amendment would have to have an out in case of a national emergency.

And the first time they needed more money... they would simply declare an emergency.

"With more than $16 trillion of debt, including nearly $6 trillion since President Obama took office, we are facing nothing short of a fiscal crisis.

Will the fiscal crisis result in a civil war?

The best thing Cornyn could have done to balance the budget was to do a better job in the 2012 elections as head of the GOP Senate campaign to get more Republican senators elected. He made a complete mess of that. Now he plays to the audience with this. Don’t get me wrong — I’d love this to happen, although I’d set that 18% number at 10% or 15%. But you are right — it is going nowhere.
