house Bill H. Con. Res. 27

The Big 10-Year Proposal To Balance The U.S. Budget

Argument in favor

The federal government has been on an unsustainable spending binge for decades, and this budget would allow the U.S. to rein in spending and finally balance the budget.

"I would insist on [a balanced budget] relatively soon. Right now, we're so under, we're so far under that you can't go too quickly. But I would absolutely insist on it relatively soon. And I would make deals that would be so good and fast." [foxnews.com]

Argument opposed

Not only does this budget take until 2025 to balance the budget, but it drastically cuts the growth in spending on essential services that help vulnerable populations in the U.S. the most.

"Another budget that makes too many cuts to the system. This would also repeal the Affordable Care Act, leaving 27 million people without healthcare."

"It would repeal the Affordable Care Act in its entirety" - the affordable care act helps so many people. We can not start from scratch.

Not only is the ACA working, but balancing the budget on the backs of the poor, middle class, and struggling is disgraceful. I'm glad I can count on my Senators and Representative to vote against this.

    I don't agree with every single thing on this bill. But severe spending cuts need to be made everywhere they can. We can't keep burying ourselves in more debt.

    We can not further sacrifice human lives because we don't have the guts to restore corporate and top income taxes to the levels of older, more productive times in our nation when those who gain so generously from our government also contributed to the common good.

    There are two ways to balance the budget. Spending cuts and additional revenue is what is needed. We cannot let the truely needy fall through the safety net. It must be a combination.

    The opponents of this can not have it both ways: cannot complain about how long it takes to balance and complain about cuts in the budget.

    Because the government has overspent our tax dollars for decades now. There needs to be some major reform done in this country. Congress needs to be paid only when in office and receive the same health care as the public. The military needs to quit squandering money on new and improved equipment when the current equipment is superior to other countries and still gets the job done. We need to quit wasting money on foreign aid when there are so many Americans that need that aid right here in our own country.

    More tax cuts for large corporations to support their insatiable greed? Let's get everyone to pair their fare share and actually create some balance here.

    Repeals the ACA, increases military spending, lowers corporate income tax. I don't think so.

    The track that the government is on now has deficits continuing in perpetuity. That isn't sustainable, and budget has to be balanced ASAP.

    The stated importance of a balanced budget is a red herring. It's just another ruse to try and shrink government.

    Can we please stop the posturing? Everyone knows the GOP is not really serious about this budget. It's only so they can say they passed one. They're not ready to make these cuts. I'd like to see GOP senators up for reelection get behind implementing this... Will never happen. And it shouldn't! This is a bad budget that will hurt Americans.
