ENDORSEMENTS

George Will

Washington Post Columnist

"Do you believe a balanced-budget amendment is a required

response to the nature of today’s politics and governance, now

that the courts neglect to do their duty enforcing Congress’

adherence to the Constitution’s enumeration of powers? If so,

the Compact’s amendment is remarkably resistant to evasion. It

would use the Constitution’s Article V to move the nation back

toward the limited government the Constitution’s Framers thought

their document guaranteed.”

Judge Andrew Napolitano

“To stop the insanity of an out-of-control federal government

fueled by limitless debt spending, States must unite behind the

Compact for a Balanced Budget.”

Hon. Sean Parnell

Governor, State of Alaska

“Now it is time the federal government takes the necessary

steps to address its out-of-control debt. America remains on an

unsustainable spending path and we cannot rely on Congress or

the president to fix this problem. A Balanced Budget Amendment

will be an effective tool to rein in federal spending and not saddle

future generations with our country’s debt.”

Hon. Paulette Braddock

Compact Commissioner/Legislator (GA)

“It is time to support the Compact for a Balanced Budget for the

same reasons President Ronald Reagan supported Nobel Laureate

Milton Friedman’s effort — only the states will originate a powerful balanced budget amendment. Left to its own devices, Congress will never tie its own hands.”

Hon. Lamar Smith

Congressman, State of Texas

“Congress on its own is unlikely to pass a constitutional amendment requiring the federal government to operate under a balanced budget. The States could have the power to advance this requirement through an interstate compact, a more orderly vehicle than a chaos-prone Constitutional Convention. I encourage the states to join into the Compact for America's interstate compact without delay, and send the Compact's enabling omnibus resolution to Congress for action.”

Hon. John Culberson

Congressman, State of Texas

“I support the tenets of the balanced budget amendment drafted

by the Compact for America as well as the vehicle it has devised

to initiate such an amendment – an interstate compact. It is

time to rein in federal spending, and one of the most effective

ways to do that would be with the adoption of a balanced budget

amendment.”

Mike Church

"The only rational plan to amend the Constitution and begin the process of balancing the Federal budget is the Compact for America's."

Lawrence Reed

President, Foundation for Economic Education

"Don’t sit back and fret about runaway government. Get involved, take responsibility and help save the country. Support the Compact for America’s balanced budget amendment - easily the single best vehicle to stop the sin of spending recklessly today and burdening our children and grandchildren with the tab. Your conscience demands it!”
