Statutory “pay-as-you-go” (PAYGO) is a primary focus of the Democratic Congress and a priority of President Obama’s. Enacting PAYGO into law will help restore fiscal discipline, allowing us to invest in America’s most important priorities while making the tough choices necessary to cut wasteful spending and reduce our deficits and debt. Restoring our nation’s fiscal health will not be quick or easy and the enactment of PAYGO will not erase our nation's deficits on its own, but reinstating this common sense principle is a key first step.
