Boehner Boosts the BBA

In a new web video, Speaker Boehner pledges to support the balanced-budget amendment when it comes before the House next week. “I voted for a balanced-budget amendment in the past and I’ll support it again now,” he says. “I’ve been clear with the president that the House will not grant his request for an increase in the national debt limit without spending cuts larger than the debt limit hike and clear restraints on the future spending by our government.”
