No, we should not restrict government budgets with an amendment. Governments are not run like businesses. When the economy is poor, the government must spend to boost it. However, likewise, when the economy is booming, it should fill its coffers for “a rainy day” through taxation of the wealthy. This is how Republicans weaken America- by spending and cutting taxes during booms. It will not end well. Expect another recession (or depression) for our next president to pull us out of.
