Kentucky “Balanced Budget Bill” is a Threat to the U.S. Constitution
There is a movement calling for a Constitutional Convention to “propose an amendment to the United States Constitution requiring a balanced budget.” Resolutions to this effect have been passed in 28 of the 34 states required to call for such a “Con Con”. The problem is that a Con Con cannot be limited to any single issue. There is a different process for adding an amendment to the constitution, but that is not what these resolutions are calling for. For a detailed analysis of the Con Con Crisis including the funding behind it, watch the video below by Sellus Wilder. You can follow Sellus on Facebook and Twitter, as well as connect with Kentucky Constitutional Convention Watch on Facebook.
