Be nice but don't seeing it happening in my life time without something big to take out the current Congress

good luck with that. No seriously, I wish him luck. If that somehow passed and went to the states, I'd become a single-issue voter on my state legislators.

If ever there was a climate to pass such an amendment, this is it.

Right, so when it doesn't pass, are you going to drop it?

You won't find a much stronger deficit hawk than me, but tying one's hands so thoroughly isn't too bright. Of course, running the debt up to $10 trillion isn't too bright either... :shake:

I don't support this Amendment. I mean it could mean they have to pass huge tax increases to keep things balanced. Just follow the Constitution and it wouldn't be necessary. I respect his intentions though.
