It will require a Constitutional Amendment that:1) Would require a National Balanced Budget 2) Would allow deficit spending ONLY in the event of a crisis and would require a 2/3rds majority vote in Congress AND Presidential authorization. 3) Would institute a Value Added Tax, the revenues from which would apply 100% to reducing the deficit. 4) The Value Added Tax would sunset after the deficit was paid off. It could be re-instituted to pay off any new deficit spending that resulted from crisis deficit spending. 5) Would outlaw Value Added Taxes for any other purpose than paying off the deficit. Yes, I know it is difficult to pass a Constitutional amendment, but I see no alternative. Critique.
