Rand Paul to push for a Constitutional Convention to force Balancing the Federal Budget!Submitted by the clover helix on Fri, 01/21/2011 - 01:53
This is why we backed Rand for the senate and now he's starting the serious debates this nation so desperately needs.
"U.S. Sen. Rand Paul will appear before the state Senate next month to endorse a resolution calling for an amendment to the U.S. Constitution requiring a balanced federal budget.
Senate President David Williams, R-Burkesville, who is running for governor, plans to sponsor the resolution after the legislature reconvenes Feb. 1, according to a statement from his office.
“My view is this amendment is long overdue, and I appreciate Sen. Paul for lending his voice to this effort,” Williams said in the statement.
The U.S. Constitution requires Congress to call a convention to consider proposing an amendment if two-thirds of the state legislatures ask for one. An amendment has never been proposed in this fashion."
