In today's edition of The Heartland Daily Podcast, we listen in to a presentation given by Kyle Maichle - Project Manager of Constitutional Reform. Maichle is speaking to a tea party group based out of Princeton, Illinois, about an Article V Convention approach to reining in the national debt and the federal government.  

Maichle explains why we are seeing such a strong push for constitutional reform. As Maichle states, we are facing an increasingly troubling financial situation. Currently, the federal debt stands at $19 trillion and we are projected to continue budget deficits averaging $500 billion per year. Many of these pushes center around a desire for a federal balanced budget amendment.

Maichle discusses the available options to put the brakes on this unsustainable spending and rein in the federal government. He gives a roadmap on how to bring about an Article V Convention and addresses the concerns that tend to prevent people from supporting this solution.
