Cornyn to Support Budget Control Act of 2011

Today I announced I will support the Budget Control Act of 2011 and released this statement:

Last November the message from the American people was crystal clear: end reckless, out-of-control spending and return fiscal sanity to Washington. The American people made their voices heard, and their impact has been monumental.   Read more »

Stand Or Flinch On The Boehner Bill In The Debt-Ceiling Debate?

I read the threads from last night and this morning about whether as Allen West has, conservatives should accept the Boehner plan and abandon the tea party insistence that there should be NO debt increase without spending cuts that are immediate and greater than the amount of the increase, AND there should be the issuance to the states of a Balanced Budget Amendment to The Constitution. Conservatives, some say, should take what they have already gained, no tax increase and spending cuts above the debt-ceiling increase and move on: leave the rest to the responsibility of The Senate and the President.

Debt Ceiling Update

As Congress continues to navigate this urgent and complicated debt crisis, you can count on me to do the right thing for the right reasons and to approach every vote as a free market, constitutional conservative. I have cosponsored a Balanced Budget Amendment to the Constitution every session since 2001, and I am an original cosponsor of the Cut, Cap and Balance plan that puts America on track for a balanced budget. I will continue to strenuously oppose any tax increases, while pushing hard for massive spending cuts and enforceable spending caps.   Read more »

Dems 'Won't Quit' Campaigning, Rather Than Fix Debt Crisis They Created

NRCC - The House Democrats’ campaign arm launched a fundraising drive last weekend saying that they “don’t quit” demanding a new credit card for more government spending with no strings attached:

Shovel, Shovel, Shovel!!!

Patriots,

While cleaning around the new homestead, there was an area that was covered in old hay and stray. There were piles of it spread over an area behind the barn. On top over it, were a few boards and all of the various and sundry items normally found in a bard yard.   Read more »

The Great Debate over the National Debt and the Debt Ceiling

Is the Government Participating In a Huge Ponzi Scheme?

In a word, yes! Some time ago, Treasury Secretary Geithner sent a letter to Congressional leaders about the debt ceiling increase, stating that "The longer Congress fails to act, the more we risk that investors here and around the world will lose confidence in our ability to meet our commitments and our obligations. Default by the United States is unthinkable."

Lower the Debt Ceiling!

As usual, the correct position is the exact opposite of what the major networks bark at you. Among many other good things, lowering the debt ceiling would improve investor confidence, by making clear that fewer resources will be siphoned off by the tax parasites in the future, and more available for use by the voluntary sector of society.   Read more »

Smith Co-Sponsors Cut, Cap and Balance Act

Today, I co-sponsored the Cut, Cap and Balance Act. This legislation would enact significant spending cuts, place enforceable caps on government spending and require the passage of a Balanced Budget Amendment in order to raise the debt limit.

This legislation would have an immediate impact on our debt crisis by cutting government spending and helping put our fiscal house back in order. Our nation’s $14.3 trillion debt threatens the economic security of future generations.
