It's already law!! Congress MUST balance the budget!
Yep! Jimmy Carter signed it into law when he joined us up with the IMF in 1978. But, like that FENCE that was passed by LAW to secure the southern border, there is no enforcement mechanism to force any president to obey the laws!
"States - that beginning with fiscal year 1981, the total budget outlays of the Federal Government shall not exceed its receipts."

Hat tip to radio host Bill Meyer and his guest Matt Bruce of
The Captain's AMERICA Radio Show brought this information to light.
"This has been the law of the land for 30 years, ladies and gentlemen. It’s never been repealed. Of course, I’ve got to admit it’s never been obeyed, either. That’s another objection I have to a Balanced Budget Amendment. If the big spenders in Washington won’t obey this law, what makes you think they’ll obey another one that says essentially the same thing?
Washington (CNN) - Two-thirds of Americans don't want to make it easier for illegal immigrants to become citizens....
A CNN/Opinion Research Corporation survey released Sunday indicates that 66 percent of Americans say the U.S. should not make it easier for illegal immigrants to become citizens, with 33 percent disagreeing.
Forty-two percent of Democrats questioned say the path to citizenship for illegal immigrants should be made easier. That number drops to 33 percent for independents and 16 percent for Republican respondents.
"Virtually all major subgroups oppose making it easier for illegal immigrants to become citizens, at least in the abstract ... Specific legislation that puts limits on the ability to gain citizenship has sometimes met with favor in the past if it restricts the number who can apply and penalizes them for staying in the country illegally. But the overall principle remains unpopular."
According to the poll, 52 percent are sympathetic to illegal immigrants and their families, down five points from 2006, with 47 percent unsympathetic, up eight points from four years ago.
The CNN/Opinion Research Corporation poll was conducted March 19-21, with 1,030 adult Americans questioned by telephone. The survey's sampling error is plus or minus 4.5 percentage points.
Mexico extradites flight attendant who set fire on U.S. flight
Mexico City –Aug 5, 2011
The Mexican Attorney General's Office said Thursday it extradited a former flight attendant who had fled the United States after his arrest for setting fire to a plane's bathroom.
Eder H. Rojas, a Mexican national, was wanted for extradition by a federal court in North Dakota for setting the fire 35 minutes after the Compass Airlines flight carrying 76 people took off in 2008 from Minneapolis bound for Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada.
Rojas, then 19, another flight attendant and a passenger extinguished the blaze after the fire alarm sounded, but the plane still was forced make an emergency landing in the North Dakota city of Fargo.
After being questioned by FBI agents, Rojas confessed that he was upset with the airline for making him work the Minneapolis-Regina route and that was why he used a lighter to set fire to a packet of toilet paper in the plane's bathroom.[snip]
Top Mexico trafficker claims he was DEA informant
(from Reuters, can ya believe it!!) Aug. 6, 2011
A top Mexican drug trafficker awaiting trial in Chicago is claiming that he has immunity from prosecution as he was working all along as a confidential informant for U.S. agents -- allegations the U.S. government denies.
Jesus Vicente Zambada-Niebla is the son of Ismael "El Mayo" Zambada, the right-hand man of Mexico's most wanted criminal, Joaquin "Shorty" Guzman who leads the powerful Sinaloa cartel.The younger Zambada, who is charged with cocaine and heroin trafficking, is claiming he was an informant for the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), and was given immunity from prosecution at the top level of government.
One of a slick new generation of Mexican traffickers, dubbed "narco juniors" south of the border, Zambada's extradition was hailed by the Justice Department as one of the most significant in years.
But court documents filed by his lawyers in late July argue that a deal was struck between the DEA and Sinaloa cartel attorney Humberto Loya in 1998, granting Loya and top cartel chiefs immunity for providing information about their rivals.
Zambada claims the agreement was "known and approved" by the Justice Department and cartel leaders and is seeking to have all charges tossed arguing he took over from Loya the role of "primary liaison on behalf of the Sinaloa Cartel with the United States government" in 2008.
A snappy dresser far from the brash Mexican cowboy style of his father, Zambada claims to have met with regional directors of the DEA for Latin America and Mexico at a hotel in downtown Mexico City shortly before his arrest where he received guarantees of his immunity from prosecution.

He said they beat his father and another man, and told them to plug their ears and not watch.
