Video: Watch 20 Democratic Senators say they support a balanced budget amendment 

This Saturday the Senate is expected to vote on the Cut, Cap, and Balance Act that passed the House on Tuesday. In addition to cutting $111 billion in spending, and capping spending at 19.9% percent of gross domestic product (gdp) by 2021, the CCBA also requires the House and Senate to separately pass a balanced budget amendment before the debt limit can be raised by $2.4 trillion.

In anticipation of this weekend's vote, The Club for Growth has posted a video showing 20 current Democratic Senators saying they support a balanced budget amendment. All 47 Republican Senators have said they will vote for a balanced budget amendment. 47 + 20 = 67. 67 is more than enough Senators needed to pass a constitutional amendment.
