Conservative 180-Member RSC Chairman Jim Jordan Blasts Obama's "Failed Stimulus Ideas and Rejected Tax Hikes"

Christian Coalition of America supporters all over America celebrated "Constitution Day" this past Saturday.  The Obama administration's policies have made a mockery of the United States Constitution.

The Chairman of the nearly 180 member conservative Republican Study Committee in the U.S. House of Representatives, Congressman Jim Jordan, R-OH, recently commented about "Constitution Day" and the Republicans' push this year for a Balanced Budget Amendment.  Congressman Jordan said:  "Constitution Day was this Saturday, and I encourage you to read how House Republicans are bringing to Congress a renewed focus on this founding document. One part of our effort is the push for a Balanced Budget Amendment that forces Washington to spend no more than it takes in. Only a Balanced Budget Amendment to the Constitution can truly solve our debt problems, and the debt ceiling bill requires both the House and Senate to vote on one later this year."

RSC Update: Recycling Failed Stimulus Ideas and Rejected Tax Hikes

Constitution Day was this Saturday, and I encourage you to read how House Republicans are bringing to Congress a renewed focus on this founding document. One part of our effort is the push for a Balanced Budget Amendment that forces Washington to spend no more than it takes in. Only a Balanced Budget Amendment to the Constitution can truly solve our debt problems, and the debt ceiling bill requires both the House and Senate to vote on one later this year.

Placing greater limits on how Washington can spend your money will also make it tougher for politically-connected crony capitalist firms like Solyndra to get their hands on it. While President Obama recycles failed stimulus ideas and tax hike proposals that even Democrats rejected when they had total control of Congress, conservatives in Congress will keep fighting for real reductions in spending, a halt to expensive and inefficient regulations, and a simpler tax code that’s fairer for everyone.

God Bless,

Congressman Jim Jordan
Chairman, Republican Study Committee
