Considering that we can find a Million men and women to face the enemy on the battlefield all over the earth… Considering we can find men and women to face down criminals in cities all over our country… Considering we can find men and women brave enough to run into a burning building to save dying people and put out the fire to save their possession…
…it is a national shame that none of the 537 Federally elected Representatives (Pres, VP, Senate, House) have the courage to face down the massive entitlement crisis that looms like a leviathan over America’s economy and national security.
I have a solution for them: The Balanced Budget Amendment.
Given the passage of a balanced budget amendment, the Representatives will have no choice but to face up to reducing the amount of money that goes to entitlements of Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security; reforming the way the money is used; and removing the fraud inherent in the system.
Orrin Hatch, keep fighting for the Balanced Budget Amendment! It is one of our best hopes for reining in the entitlement annihilation.
