Schakowsky opposes so-called "Balanced Budget Amendment"

April 12, 2018

First, the GOP passed a #GOPTaxScam that blows a $2 trillion hole in the budget to benefit only the wealthy. Second, they offered budgets that would fill that gap by cutting more than $2T in #SocialSecurity, #Medicare, & #Medicaid Now, they want to amend our Constitution to require that we can only spend in any given year what we raise in tax revenues in that same year – after having just cut those revenues. How will they pay for it? Again, of course, on the backs of seniors.
