Alexander Votes for Balanced Budget Amendment Supported by All 47 Republican Senators

Posted on December 14, 2011

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) today released the following statement regarding his vote for S.J. Res. 10, a Balanced Budget Amendment to the Constitution that Alexander cosponsored along with every Republican senator:

“Washington has to stop spending money we don't have, so I am for cutting spending, capping what Congress can spend each year, and passing a Balanced Budget Amendment.”

Alexander voted against S. J. Res 24, a Democratic alternative proposal that would not cap spending and gives Congress less control over lowering taxes.
