    OpenCongress Bill Summary

    • Ties an increase in the federal debt limit to enforceable spending targets that would make deep cuts in non-Defense discretionary spending while allowing the military budget to continue to increase. It would also require passage of a constitutional Balanced Budget Amendment calling for the federal budget to deficit-neutral each year with total spending at no more than 18% of GDP, a historically low level. The amendment would require a 2/3rds majority for any revenue increases and would only allow an exception the deficit-neutral requirement in times of war.

    • On July 27, 2011, by gmarceau - You are confusing DEFICIT with SPENDING. They are not the same thing. Deficit is how in the red we are each year, not how much we are spending. Your argument says 'spending', but your numbers are taken from the 'spending' chart. This is the right chart: "usgovernmentspending.com":http://bit.ly/pP5FdW It shows that spending was stable under Reagan at 22%, went down with Clinton to 18%, than up a bit with Bush 2000-2008 to 20%, and then WAY WAY up when Bush passed the bank bail out (to 25%). The only time spending was below 5% of GDP was at the start of the great depression, in 1930.

      As noted by gmarceau, a user on OpenCongress.org, on July 27, 2011, "You are confusing DEFICIT with SPENDING. They are not the same thing. Deficit is how in the red we are each year, not how much we are spending. Your argument says 'spending', but your numbers are taken from the 'spending' chart.

    • On July 19, 2011, by peacefrog - Either way we're in pretty deep. Does anyone here think our country can survive for even another 10 years economically, politically, spiritually? Even if we start reducing the deficits and eventually start paying down the debt, how much longer can our nation endure 20% + real unemployment while at the same time the government strips away our rights and destroys the remnants of our free markets? I'm trying to be positive about where we're at, but real optimism only exists when one understands the worst of one's circumstance and still chooses to forge ahead with nothing but pure faith and hope. In such a dire situation as what we face now, anything less is just wishful thinking, denial, and/or a hollow and baseless. If you really come to terms with what $14+ trillion in debt and $1.5 trillion annual deficits means for our nation, you'll realize it's nearly impossible to reverse. Historically, major empires fail because they become overextended economically. That's reality.
