U.S. Rep. Jack Kingston’s office said on Thursday the Senate hopeful has voted in favor of the Republican Study Committee budget.
The “Back to Basics” Republican Study Budget says the proposal is designed to balance the budget in four years; ensure a strong national defense; and reform entitlements to stave off a debt crisis, in addition to implementing a Republican healthcare reform bill and repealing Obamacare. The RSC Budget is also calling for pro-growth tax reform as well as passage of the RSC’s JOBS Act.
Kingston and two other Senate candidates, U.S. Reps. Phil Gingrey and Paul Broun, all voted against the budget sponsored by U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan on Thursday.
The idea of a balanced budget Constitutional amendment also made headlines on Wednesday, courtesy of George Will’s column in The Washington Post. Will highlighted a proposal that would call a constitutional convention under Article V of the Constitution to enact a balanced budget amendment.
