This sounds like a great way to concentrate power even more and produce less accountability in DC. Talk of balance in DC…they have been doing nothing but growing government for decades, and now balance is merely slowing that growth. With total direct govt. spending at 44%, how much of GDP is private sector that is not dependent on govt. spending? Maybe 15 or 20%? Can we go farther down this road? If we want an economy left, govt. must shrink dramatically.
