Yes now the republicans are panicking and talk about balanced budget law after failed republican policies has been what drove US deficit to its now all time high with expectations of going much higher under current republican policies. Our country has been living beyond its means for decades so I think expecting balanced budget off the bat is too much correction all at one time with likely devastating results for American taxpayers-remember us?-“We the People”, the other 95 percent? Lets focus and work on the problem guys, don’ jump to dismantle or reform Medicare or Social security just yet!! You congressional leaders and especially Trump have not earned our trust yet so don’t entertain the idea looking at Medicare or Social security until you fix the mess you have created! Come up with bipartisan viable solutions and respectful of one another’s’ effort. How about come up with plan about how we can get to balanced budget say within next 4 years, but budgets submitted should be balanced since that is the goal of the tool in the first place!
