Shouldn’t we have something like this?

President Obama explains the Pay As You Go law, which forces congressmen and senators to allocate actual funds from old spending/new taxes to new spending, here. Shouldn’t all proposed bills going through the Oireachtas have this attached, that is, they have to explain how they will be paid for?

One thought on “Shouldn’t we have something like this?

  1. It’s not obvious to me that we need this all that much, but it could only improve things, I imagine.

    Perhaps its biggest benefit, however, might be to force the commentariat to confront the issues in question.
