Our goal is to help facilitate the ratification of a balanced
budget amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

Since 2009, Congress has borrowed more than $1 trillion each year, pushing the national debt from $10 to $19 trillion or nearly $160,000 per tax-payer, and it plans to borrow another trillion each year over the next decade – providing proof that Washington has no plans to change!

In order to prevent a severe economic meltdown, we must impose fiscal restraints on Congress via a federal balanced budget amendment (BBA).

Thomas Jefferson first called for a BBA in 1798 when he wrote, “I wish it were possible to obtain a single amendment … taking from the Federal Government the power of borrowing.”

Congress has flirted with the possibility of proposing a balanced budget amendment for over forty years, but has never found the courage to do it.

Ronald Reagan tried but failed to convince Congress to propose a BBA which is why he wrote, “Our Nation’s Founders gave us the means to amend the Constitution through action of state legislatures … That is the only strategy that will work.”

Only the States have the constitutional power to rid Congress of its deficit spending addiction via a BBA. In order to do so, 34 States must call a convention to propose an amendment and 38 States must ratify it.

27 states have already called for a convention to propose a balanced budget amendment! With your help we can reach 34 by July 4, 2016!
