Rep. Nancy Mace Introduces Penny Plan to Balance Budget

Published

on

Rep. Nancy Mace today released the following statement after the introduction of her Penny Plan to Enhance Infrastructure Act of 2022, a companion to Sen. Rand Paul’s bill that sets out to balance the federal budget within five years:

“Today the President released his massive 5.8 trillion budget request to Congress. Despite our debt now topping over $30 trillion, the Administration is still calling for massive federal spending initiatives. I am happy to introduce companion legislation in the House to bring some fiscal sanity to Washington.

Four years ago, we could have balanced the Federal budget by freezing spending; then, by subtracting a penny from every dollar spent. Today the debt is so high – growing $3 trillion in just the past year – that we would need to cut five and a half pennies from every dollar spent in order to balance the budget. Inflation is at a 40 year high and Congress continues to spend as if the bill will never come due.”
