The Balanced Budget Amendment that is being discussed in Congress would be terrible for America’s retired workers. It would use automatic cuts to their earned benefits to balance the federal budget in any year that there is a revenue shortfall. Such a law would be a travesty of justice punishing working and middle-class Americans while the wealthiest American continue to reap the harvest of the most recent #GOP tax cuts. In short, the Balance Budget Amendment would seek to balance the federal budget from the pockets of those least able to pay for it, while those who are not paying their fair share get a free pass.
