Ben Carson on the Federal Budget

Carson supports a Balanced Budget amendment to the Constitution. He also bemoans out of control federal spending and calls for a reduction in the size of government.

BEN CARSON: “You know, we have people in leadership positions in our country who consider it a victory when the debt doesn't go up as fast this quarter as it did last quarter. I mean, that's their measuring stick. I mean, how ridiculous in that? We have to change that. We need to have a Balanced Budget amendment.

(16:40 – 18:07)
No spending outside of that. And we need to shrink the size of government, because you know, in 2010, if you took the salary of everybody who made $69,000 and more, it comes out to $5.1 trillion. Small money. What was the federal budget back then? $3.5 trillion. 60% of everything that middle class group of people and above made, just to run the federal government. Now think back to the Boston Tea Party. The taxation rate was less than 5% - what would they be doing today? I mean, they would be going bananas looking at this!”
