A Balanced Buget Amendment

I listened to the Mark Reardon Show on KMOX this afternoon and of course the discussion was about the debt ceiling debate. Rep. Russ Carnahan (D) was one of the guests. He made a statement that I will roughly quote in response to whether a balanced budget amendment should be included in the negotiations to raise the debt ceiling. He in essence said, "A balanced budget amendment just isn't practical."

Here we see why we are at the verge of financial oblivion. A balanced budget just isn't practical. Even if he meant not practical to include in the debt limit legislation HE'S DEAD WRONG. It's exactly what we need to avert catastrophe (if that is still possible.)

There is coming a reckoning. Folly's consequences always find there way home.
