Senator Johnson calls for spending reform in Congress


WASHINGTON, D.C. (WSAU) - U.S. Senator Ron Johnson renews his call for a mandatory cap on federal spending.

The Wisconsin Republican has said in the past he would support putting a cap on total spending at 20-point-6 percent of the gross national product, hoping to accomplish that by the end of the decade. In a published report from last Friday, Johnson told the Tea Party Patriots he prefers a constitutional amendment. Johnson says the limit should be set at 18 to 19 percent of the GDP.

Johnson says Cut, Cap and Balance is a solid proposal. He says he thinks it will take a constitutional amendment to solve the structural budget problem, long-term.
