Sensenbrenner, Ribble Support Useless BBA

The Balanced Budget Amendment idea has been around for a while.  Sounds good, no?  Amend the Constitution to require that the FedGov balance its budget.

(To Congress-critters, that's preferable to electing responsible and sober people, of course.  The current bunch would lose their jobs.)

So Rep Goodlatte comes up with a BBA!  And Ribble and Sensenbrenner sign on!!  So did Bachmann, Hensarling, West, and a few others who like to play 'Conservative' for the cameras.

Only one problem:  the proposal doesn't say HOW the Feds will balance the budget.

And you don't need any imagination to guess how they'll do it, either.

Another example of Sensenbrenner "finding something to do" until he can bilk his big fat government pension in retirement.

Jim Sensenbrenner: doing nothing but taking up more space every day as he loosens that belt of his notch by notch.

A four decade lifetime politician complete loss.
