Take Action: Stop the Reckless Balanced Budget Proposal
Congress is on the brink of voting on a reckless proposal to amend the constitution in favor of a balanced budget. This dangerous proposal is a threat to our democracy and would throw our economy out of balance.
Moving this legislation forward could force the U.S. into a recession, causing job loss and hurt long-term growth. Cuts to balance the budget will come at the expense of working families and those in need of public assistance programs like Medicaid and Social Security. And it would hurt working families by sabotaging our economy -- and making recessions slump deeper and last longer.
