maybe in Washington when they finish reading the Constitution they can read a little history. This was said in 55 BC !!!

The national budget must be balanced. The public debt must be reduced; the arrogance of the authorities must be moderated and controlled. Payments to foreign governments must be reduced. If the nation doesn't want to go bankrupt, people must again learn to work, instead of living on public assistance. – Marcus Tullius Cicero, 55 BC

I agree.    Look at every nation that failed (not conquered).  The question is just how much is too much debt for our nation before we break.

It's a manufactured quote.

My bad seems most readers of Circero disagree and say he never said it. Some say he said this but other disagree with this.
   "The arrogance of officialdom should be tempered and controlled, and assistance to foreign hands should be curtailed, lest Rome fall."

Sounded good anyway.

I really think a lot of Congress has no idea what is in the Constitution.I think it is a good idea that any spending bill brought to the House of representatives(which by the Constitution is where all spending law originates) should be demonstrated wheer it is Constiturtionally acceptable to spend this money.
 i think the concept of the phrase you posted is good,no matter where it came from.

I think most here in America don't understand.    And with congress, the supreme court keeps them in check.

I still think congress should pass a test before they get to vote on anything.   One question on the test, balance a check book.

I purpose a CSA Amendment to the US Constitution ..... Every law, or resolution having the force of law, shall relate to but one subject, and that shall be expressed in the title.

This would prevent what we see today, where endless riders or ear marks are attached to bills that can allow Congress to pass all sorts of extraordinarily complicated laws that regulate about 50 different topics at once.
