I would say yes, but, how the budget would be balanced in the republican mindset would to cut every social program and many federal jobs while bulking up the expenditures for the Military Complex. As many know, the Military Complex includes the military, every secret project(whether it has to do with the military or not), and every office that off the official books but included here. Our government(which has been republican run for too many decades) has far too many secrets from The American People who pay the tab for this. It is high time we know where every single penny is spent. A balanced budget amendment would be a good idea but we’ve seen too many times how the budget is balanced, so not until the American People have protections included.
