ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - U.S. Senate candidate Marco Rubio wants a constitutional amendment requiring Congress to balance the budget and a requirement that any future taxes be approved by a two-thirds vote of the House and Senate.
The Florida Republican outlined a plan to cut government spending during a town hall meeting in Jacksonville Monday.
The 12-point plan also calls for cutting the budgets of the White House and Congress by 10 percent, ending the economic stimulus plan, banning all earmarks and freezing all federal spending to 2008 levels, with the exception of spending on defense and veterans.
Rubio also wants to give the president the line-item veto and also have a policy of hiring one federal civilian employee for every two that leave.
