31 days, 31 reasons: Reason #4 - Balance the budget!

Balancing a budget isn't the easiest of things to do, but if you were doing it with somebody else's money wouldn't you at least want to try?  In order to help balance the Federal budget Barack Obama will re-institute PAYGO rules, from the website:

Reinstate PAYGO Rules: Obama and Biden believe that a critical step in restoring fiscal discipline is enforcing pay-as-you-go (PAYGO) budgeting rules which require new spending commitments or tax changes to be paid for by cuts to other programs or new revenue.
Bush ran on the promise that a business man could run Washington better, more like a company, well the Federal Government has increased it's budget 28.8% in the last 8 years while the National Debt has risen from $5.7 to $8.8 TRILLION dollars!
