“No nation has a right to contract debt for periods longer than the majority contracting it can expect to live.”

“I wish it were possible to obtain a single amendment taking from the Federal Government the power of borrowing.”

— Thomas Jefferson

IMPLEMENTING FISCAL RESTRAINT VIA A BALANCED BUDGET AMENDMENT

In order to STOP Congress from it’s egregious violation of Jefferson’s moral admonition, the STATES must utilize Article V of the U.S. Constitution. To do so, 2/3s of the states (34) must call for a convention to propose a balanced budget amendment and 3/4s of the states (38) must ratify it.

“The Congress knows that the people want more fiscal responsibility, but it is unwilling to oblige it … If the only way to clarify the law, if the only way to remove us from utter bondage to the Congress, is to take what I think to be a minimal risk on this limited convention, then let’s take it.”

 —  Antonin Scalia

We have 27 of the 34 STATES required to call a convention to propose a balanced budget amendment. With your help we can reach 34 by July 4th, 2018!
