States should propose a balanced budget amendment
Rep. Kim Koppelman, who is exploring a possible run for Congress in North Dakota, today urged states to work together to propose a Balanced Budget Amendment, because Congress won't act.
"Some in Congress have worked hard to pass a Constitutional amendment to balance the federal budget. I support their efforts, but today's vote indicates that, once again, Washington refuses to limit its own power."
