Dean Jeffrey is worried. The volunteer for Convention of States Wisconsin has seen the Government Accountability Office's financial predictions for our country, and he sounded the alarm at a recent state legislative hearing.
"Our country could easily be bankrupt within three generations," he said. "The predicted debt curves are rising exponentially."
What's worse, we can't trust Congress to do anything about it.
"And yet the silence on this issue in Washington, D.C., is deafening," he warned.
Fortunately, as Dean explained, there is a solution. Article V of the Constitution allows the states to bypass a stubborn Congress by proposing multiple constitutional amendments to impose fiscal restraints on the federal government.
These amendments can include a balanced budget amendment to lower the debt and eliminate the deficit. But they can also include amendments that cap spending and limit taxation. These additional amendments will force Congress to actually cut spending rather than simply raise taxes to make up the deficit.
With this complete package of amendments in place, we can secure our country's future and save our children and grandchildren from financial ruin.
