STATEMENT BY THE PRESS SECRETARY ON THE PROPOSED BALANCED BUDGET
AMENDMENT IN RESPONSE TO A LETTER FROM SPEAKER GINGRICH
The burden of proof is on those who propose constitutional requirements for a balanced budget, not on an administration that has already cut government spending by $255 billion and reduced the deficit by $700 billion.
We've done the hard work of cutting government. It's now time for the Republicans to demonstrate that they are capable of such specifics.
