Buck to serve as National Co-Chair of Pass the Balance Budget Amendment

Pass the Balanced Budget Amendment, a national grassroots organization committed to ensuring elected leaders are held fiscally accountable, announced today that Ken Buck will serve as a chairman for the group:

As Colorado’s Republican US Senate Candidate in 2010, Ken Buck made passage of a Balanced Budget Amendment a top priority to rein in out of control government spending. Since the campaign, Buck has continued his leadership for a BBA with a bottom up approach to help state based grassroots activists pressure Washington on spending restraint and finally balancing our federal budget.

Phoenix-based Pass the BBA has emerged as the leading advocate for a BBA. Pass the BBA is an “outside the Beltway” non-partisan, grassroots movement actively gathering 5,000 to 10,000 voter signatures in all 435 congressional districts demanding that elected representatives pledge to end Washington’s out-of-control spending, balance the budget and protect us from the bondage of foreign debt.

“Colorado citizens are very familiar with Ken Buck’s dedication to sound public policy to help families, strengthen communities and boost the economy,” said Ken Blackwell, National Chairman of Pass the BBA. “Ken Buck is going to bring that same enthusiasm for our national efforts to Pass The Balance Budget Amendment, and we welcome him to our team. Ken will provide excellent leadership for our grassroots campaign.”

Pass the BBA is driven by the voters who overwhelmingly demanded greater fiscal responsibility at the polls last November. Harnessing that unprecedented energy, our 50-state grassroots and media campaign will give a voice to the millions of Americans who are demanding an end to Washington’s out-of-control spending through the implementation of a balanced budget amendment to the Constitution.

“I am honored to be a part of Pass The Balanced Budget Amendment. Americans are frustrated with the uncontrollable spending coming from their capitol,” said Ken Buck. “Only through a Constitutional Amendment requiring a balanced budget and safeguards against increasing taxes or increasing debts can the people be assured our representatives spend within their means.”

Ken Buck will spearhead Pass The BBA’s grassroots efforts. By educating and mobilizing concerned citizens, Mr. Buck will lead efforts to push for legislation in state legislature and if available utilize the initiative and referendum process.
