I’ve been surprised and outraged by the fact that Congress has not passed a budget in more than three years and that it is not receiving more attention.
We are in the midst of a fiscal crisis, but those responsible for putting us in this position continue to submit reckless spending proposals that dig us deeper into debt.
Now is the time to get our nation’s spending under control. We should permanently eliminate earmarks and finally pass a budget.
In short, it’s time we make meaningful reforms and get our fiscal house in order.
New Hampshire families have to balance their budget – our representatives in Congress should have to do the same.
I’ve been pleased to see that Sen. Kelly Ayotte supports a balanced budget amendment and has said she will file legislation that will block pay raises for Congress.
I hope the rest of the New Hampshire delegation soon will join with her on these important issues.
