"I think a balanced budget amendment would be a big step forward in the cause of fiscal discipline but, of course, not the only step. As the cochairs of the President's debt commission have already indicated, we need other measures. One that caught my eye they called a 'cut and invest committee,' charged with trimming waste and targeting investment. They noticed a good example at the State level, in my State of Texas, where we have a sunset commission that requires, every 10 years, every State agency to go through a process to determine whether the programs and the agency itself continue to have good reason to exist at the spending levels authorized. We need something such as that, which will provide a tremendous ability for us to have additional tools to contain costs and avoid wasteful spending." close
