Letter to the Editor

To the Editor:

If you’d like to tell the full Congress to balance the budget, there is a
Balanced Budget Amendment petition at

It may be that balancing the budget would bring about a new recession; however, if the national debt means
we’re headed for a depression anyway, then balancing the budget now might
help us get out of it decades sooner.
      Perhaps we should contact our state legislators as well, to double our
chances of passing such an amendment.
