Why didn't republicans propose this when a surplus was turned into a deficit???? Oh right....because that would have been Bush.
The only sensible time to pass such a law is when we are already in a budget surplus.

Dear God, not another Southern Congressman who wants to impeach a president! I guess it's the legacy of Barr, Gingrich, and Livingston
Brooks would let the debt ceiling rise by trillions, then somehow impeach the president over congress's job. At first I thought he meant impeach members of congress. Please, sir, don't trivialize "treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors".
