U of MN Wrestling Coach supports balanced budget amendment

Minnesota Gophers wrestling coach J. Robinson (former Army captain and National Wrestling Hall of Fame inductee) had this to say in a Q&A session with St. Paul Pioneer Press columnist Bob Sansevere in the Sept. 21, 2007 issue of the paper, prior to the team's departure for a White House ceremony commemorating their 2007 National Championship.

The second thing is a balanced budget amendment. Right now, politicians talk out of both sides of their mouth. They tell the poor people, "We're not going to cut your services." And they tell the rich people, "We're not going to raise your taxes." And they can do that and then go and vote for deficit spending. The politicians don't have to make hard choices. If you take away everybody's credit card so they can't charge anything, you know what you buy when you go to the grocery store? You buy hamburger. You don't buy steak. Because you can only afford hamburger. It makes your decision-making process completely different. It mandates what you have to do. So those two things will change America.
