Rep. Hoyer: 'Worried' GOP Pushing Balanced Budget Amendment

Rep. Hoyer: 'Worried' GOP Pushing Balanced Budget Amendment

Republicans are pushing for a balanced budget amendment to the Constitution because they are trying to convince voters they are concerned about the deficit, Rep. Steny Hoyer, D-Md., said.

"They're worried, and they're flailing about and this is part of the flailing about," Hoyer said Tuesday in the Washington Examiner.

The House of Representatives is expected to vote on a requirement that would block Congress from spending more money than it brings in per year, and Republicans are also looking at a rescission resolution, which would allow cuts to domestic spending that was passed in the omnibus budget bill, the Examiner reported.

Hoyer said the effort from Republicans was a "fraud" and a "charade."

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., instructed Democrats Monday to keep voting against Republican initiatives, the Examiner reported Monday.

Pelosi, in those instructions, said the balanced budget amendment was "hypocritical and dangerous."
