Please support a balanced budget amendment. As we have seen, especially in the last 20 years, both parties cannot police themselves. While I find the debt ceiling argument ridiculous as this is monies already spent, both sides need to compromise and meet towards the middle and stop catering to the loud (but small) fringe on both sides. Spending will need to be decreased AND revenues will have to be raised. Get rid of a large number of deductions (LIFO for example) and get corporate rates inline. Please don't continue the course and eventually we become Greece.
