...how would we have funded the Afghan and Iraq wars?
Does not apply to war or national emergency.
Plus a super-majority can utilize discretionary overrule.
We would have funded it by cutting your welfare, turd.
Don't bother them with facts, they don't do facts.
I bet you think that is an argument against the BBA, don't you? Shouldn't you, if you actually oppose those wars, be asking for a BBA to prevent them?
They would fall under the amendments emergency provisions.
A balanced budget amendment is a very stupid idea.
Instead of atttempting to tie the hands of bad leaders, perhaps we ought to trying figuring out why the leaders have consistently been so bad?
You guys are trying to cure this social disease by treating the symptoms, rather than trying to figure out the casue of it in the first place.
The reason leaders are bad is because the are selected by the bottom 51% of the voters. Under Democracy, the scum rises to the top. The only way to get rid of bad leaders is to abolish Democracy and implement an aristocracy.
Useless, it would be "over ridden" like they talk about here right away
Not that it has much to do with the BBA, but Congress did approve both wars, didn't they? And some democrats voted for them too I think. If they were so concerned ith the funding maybe they shoulda done something about it then.
