David Young on Budget & Economy

 

 


Better Budget Principles rooted in Iowa common sense

have revenue. In Iowa, this concept is just common sense.
  • Zero Based Budgeting--this solution simply means that each year, the funding level for all government programs and agencies will begin at $0. This is a better budgeting practice than giving every program the same amount as last year, plus a raise.
  • Sunset Legislation--attaching a sunset clause to every law enacted by Congress means policies will no longer outlive their usefulness. When the sunset date arrives, Congress will examine the program anew and determine if it should continue for another finite period of time.
  • Full Federal Audit--every agency should undergo a thorough outside audit to ensure taxpayer funds are being used in the most effective manner possible.

    Supports a Balanced Budget Amendment.

    Young supports the CC survey question on Balanced Budget

    CC.org's self-description: "The Christian Coalition voter guide [is] one of the most powerful tools Christians have ever had to impact our society during elections. This simple tool has helped educate tens of millions of citizens across this nation as to where candidates for public office stand on key faith and family issues.

    The Coalition is a political organization, made up of pro-family Americans who care deeply about ensuring that government serves to strengthen and preserve, rather than threaten, our families and our values. To that end, we work continuously to identify, educate and mobilize Christians for effective political action." The CC survey summarizes candidate stances on the following topic: 'Passage of a Balanced Budget Amendment to the U.S. Constitution'
