Congressman Poliquin on the Balanced Budget Constitutional Amendment

Congressman Poliquin on the Balanced Budget Constitutional Amendment

Today, Congressman Bruce Poliquin spoke on the House Floor in support of the Balanced Budget Constitutional Amendment. He released the following statement:

“In the Second District, hard-working families gather around the kitchen table and balance their checkbooks. The time has come for Washington to do the same; which is why I have become an original cosponsor of the Balanced Budget Constitutional Amendment. This amendment will not only help lower taxes and interest rates, but it will help job creators expand their businesses and create more jobs for the Second District and beyond.”
