Congress does NOT need a law to tell them to do their own jobs, and even worse is the completely empty ‘amendment’ ploy, since of course that can easily get sunk along the way, and by then, why, that’ll be someone else’s problem.

If Congress wants to balance the budget, they have all the power to do so today. STOP SPENDING THE MONEY.

–Caps To Control Future Spending. The framework imposes spending caps that would establish clear limits on future spending and serve as a barrier against government expansion while the economy grows. Failure to remain below these caps will trigger automatic across-the-board cuts (otherwise known as sequestration).

Simply words on a piece of paper -- they can't constrain a future Congress like that.

No, what we need are real cuts, today. Period. project future savings all you like, but be honest about what's really being cut and what is beyond this Congress' control.

What a stupid plan. What is with these 10 year gimmicks? They could probably balance it in 5 by going back to 2008 levels and freezing it for 5 years.

That might be somewhat good news if the $1T increase would last for an entire decade.

Sorry, Bone-head.

$1 trillion over the next decade will be far exceeded by the dim-bulb-crat graft and corruption increases during that same period.

Try again.

Like that amount during next year.

$1.2 trillion over a decade is NOTHING and we know they won’t cut a dime.

What would be the point of a Balanced Budget Amendment if even the guy proposing it offers to cut such a piddling amount??

Bullshit, Boener !

A ten year point 2 billion 'savings' that kinetically will tank us in 2-4 years ?

Bullshit ... NO debt criling increase, period.

What part of, "We're broke because of the devil you're negotiating with" don't you get?

What is it that everything has to project over ten years?
What we need is $1.2 Trillion in cuts for the next two years, and even that really is not enough.
The Reckoning is coming and when it does there is going to be a passel of finger pointing.
Well all these idiots have to do is look in the mirror and they will have found the guilty parties.

Let’s make it easy for them.

Go here and open Rand Pauls 5 Year Budget plan: http://www.campaignforliberty.com/blog.php?view=41227

It’s fully of specific quantified cuts in federal programs across the board. Pick some, and don’t stop until they total at least $3 trillion.

Then get on the boob tube and announced that you have a plan to CUT SPENDING BY $3T and here it is. Name names.

When the SHTF, say OK, you have a better plan, let’s hear it - but remember the total has to come to $3T. Stand back and watch the fun.

Does this sound like a Daddy telling the little darlings at home they have to do without either the movie channels, the NetFlix, the video games, the vacation, the new phone, etc? Well that’s how you deal with people who have the maturity level of children.

Fun’s over kids. Time to pay the bills.
