During Tuesday’s Republican Conference meeting, U.S. Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) hailed the unanimous passage of the resolution he introduced that calls for a Balanced Budget Amendment (BBA) to the U.S. Constitution. Sen. Cornyn also cosponsored and supported a resolution calling for a Republican moratorium on earmarks.

“The American people have spoken, and Republicans have listened. I implore my Democratic colleagues to join us in our effort to restore fiscal sanity to Washington and make a Balanced Budget Amendment the law of the land,” said Cornyn. “The American people want Democrats and Republicans to work together, and I can think of no better way to tell them ‘message received’ than all one hundred senators kicking off the new Congress unanimously voting to adopt a Balanced Budget Amendment.”

The resolution states that the balanced budget amendment should require the president to submit a balanced budget every year to Congress, a super-majority vote to increase taxes on the American people, and impose a limitation on federal spending.
