Sen. Jerry Moran: KS Common Sense – We Need a Balanced Budget Amendment

Tuesday, July 19th, 2011

We Need a Balanced Budget Amendment to the U.S. Constitution

The fiscal crisis our country finds itself in is the result of many years of our federal government living beyond its means. Though in recent weeks we have heard much talk about cutting spending and reducing our debt, the past has taught us that the President and Congress will not make the difficult decisions necessary to get our fiscal house in order without a tough budget mechanism in place to force accountability. Washington’s borrows 40 cents of every dollar spent, and I strongly believe a critical part of kicking this reckless habit is passage of a balanced budget amendment (BBA) to the U.S. Constitution. A BBA would turn talk into action by constitutionally binding the President to request and Congress to approve a balanced federal budget each year.

We will soon force a vote on the legislation in the Senate. In recent weeks, I have advocated for a BBA as a fundamental reform required as part of any agreement to raise the debt ceiling. Click here to view a video compilation of my recent remarks on the importance of a BBA.

As We Celebrate Our Liberty, An Iranian Pastor Faces Death – David French, National Review

Saturday, July 2nd, 2011

On this holiday weekend an Iranian pastor’s life hangs in the balance. On June 28, the Iranian Supreme Court upheld a death sentence against Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani. His crimes? Apostasy and evangelism. Pastor Nadarkhani had publicly opposed an Iranian practice requiring that all children, regardless of faith, receive Islamic instruction. In spite of alleged religious-freedom guarantees under the Iranian constitution, he now faces death – a sentence that could literally be carried out at any time.
