"All options are on the table when it comes to the debt limit negotiations - except tax hikes," Mr. Cantor's press secretary, Laena Fallon, told The Washington Times. "That includes consideration of a Balanced Budget Amendment, which we may bring forward in the House for a stand-alone vote. That said, Leader Cantor has made clear that we must achieve real and immediate spending cuts in order to raise the debt limit."
"This provision was extremely broad, and its impact would have raised more questions than it answered," Ms. Fallon said. "Worse, the unintended consequences on the provision could have affected the First Amendment rights of everyone participating in local rotaries to national media conglomerates."
