McCarthy Encourages Americans To Speak Out On A Balanced Budget Amendment

Washington D.C. – House Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy (CA-22) released the following statement encouraging Americans across the country to make their voices heard on a balanced budget amendment to the Constitution using America Speaking Out (ASO):

“Over the past couple months, House Republicans have spoken out on the need for Congress to pass a balanced budget amendment. We currently face an impending debt crisis, one that imperils our near-term and long-term economic growth and will greatly exacerbate our already unacceptably high unemployment rate. The House has taken action to manage down our debt and Washington excess, but only the binding authority of a balanced budget amendment will ensure that we can walk our country back from this cliff.
