Governor Kasich recently asked the Ohio Legislature to pass a resolution calling for a federal constitutional convention that would approve a balanced budget amendment. Here’s a short video message:
Like virtually every other state, Ohio is required by law to balance our state budget, thereby requiring accountability for your taxpayer dollars. It’s about time the federal government did the same. By signing this petition supporting a federal balanced budget amendment, you’re helping send a message to our leaders in Washington DC that your tax dollars must be spent responsibly, and that helps all of Ohio.
While in Congress in the 1990’s, John Kasich led the last successful effort to balance the federal budget and it marked the last point in American history when the U.S. Government had a surplus.
