Speaker John Boehner told House Republicans this afternoon that the GOP’s upcoming budget will balance the federal books in a decade.
Due to the Democrats’ control of the White House and Senate, the possibility of that promise becoming law is remote. But the speaker’s vocal support for the idea reportedly drew cheers within the House Republican conference.
Add my voice to the cheers. It should be obvious to all – whether Republican, Democrat, or Unaffiliated – that this country’s finances are careening toward a massive crash. We can no longer avoid the consequences. Let’s hope and pray that fiscal sanity prevails in Washington D.C. Things are definitely moving in the right direction here in North Carolina, where the new governor and many in the legislature understand that living within one’s means isn’t extreme thought or policy, it is the responsible approach to ensuring stability, economic growth, future prosperity, and the means, both private and public, to care for those truly in need.
