State of New Mexico Archives: on Budget & Economy


Heather Wilson: Strongly in favor of a balanced-budget amendment

Heinrich said Wilson has endorsed a plan for radical cuts to Social Security. That was a reference to the "Cut, Cap and Balance" pledge, in which signers promise to oppose any move to raise the federal debt limit unless it's accompanied by major spending cuts, caps on future spending and a balanced-budget amendment to the U.S. Constitution. Wilson did sign that pledge in June 2011. In the debate, she argued strongly in favor of a balanced-budget amendment.

Susana Martinez: Cut spending to balance state budget

In order to balance our budget and address our state's fiscal crisis, we must act quickly to cut waste from government. This is the beginning of our fight to balance the budget and rein in government spending. It's time to cut spending, shrink government, and commit ourselves to protecting taxpayer money rather than wasting it.
