Ed Gillespie on Budget & Economy

 


Budget-cutting is collective exercise in national interest

GOP unity breaks down when members of congress focus on "bringing home the bacon." Earmarking is a singular pursuit in a parochial interest. Budget cutting is a collective exercise in the national interest.

Regardless, we'll never outspend the Democrats. Can Republicans do better than Republicans are doing now at controlling spending? Absolutely. Can Democrats do better than Republicans are doing now at controlling spending? Absolutely not.

The Fiscal Responsibility Act:
A balanced budget/tax limitation amendment and a legislative line-item veto to restore fiscal responsibility to an out-of-control Congress, requiring them to live under the same budget constraints as families and businesses.
