Roskam: $15 Trillion‏??

From the office of Rep. Peter Roskam (R, Illinois 6th District)…

This week our national debt reached $15 trillion. It’s a sad moment for our country. That’s partly why the House voted on a Balanced Budget Amendment this past Friday. I’m deeply dissappointed to tell you that it didn’t pass because not enough Democrats supported it. A balanced budget shouldn’t be about partisan politics. It’s about changing the way business is done in Washington and not allowing another $15 trillion in debt.

You can watch me discuss why Washington needs a Balanced Budget Amendment on FOX News, Bloomberg, ABC, and also on the House floor.

On a separate note, do you have WhipCast yet? It’s a first-of-its-kind government app that Whip McCarthy and I introduced this week on the iPhone, iPad, Blackberry, and Android. WhipCast is a revolutionary effort in government transparency providing real-time information from the House floor. Watch the trailer for WhipCast here and download it on my website. Nearly 30,000 people have already downloaded it.

I hope everyone has a safe and enjoyable Thanksgiving with their friends and family and I look forward to updating you further after the Holiday.
