Balanced Budget Amendment Added To Debt Ceiling Vote
Congressman Jeff Landry says he and other US House conservatives have added a balanced budget amendment to the debt ceiling plan brought by House Speaker John Boehner. Landry says the amendment would require a ratified balanced budget amendment to be in place before the NEXT time Congress and the White House seek to raise the debt ceiling.
22 Senate Democrats have previously expressed support for a Balanced Budget Amendment. A federal deadline to raise the country's credit limit is coming up Tuesday.
