Constitutional Amendment : National Debt - Remove Congressional Authority/Oversight

The real solution to the supposed "National Debt Crisis" would be a national referendum or new election for the House of Representative.  Since neither of those is likely to happen or even possible let's try something else.

The "crisis" is being manufactured by GOP / Republicans to accomplish a different political agenda item altogether.  They see it as a way to gain leverage so they can destroy the Safety Net as we know it.  Even many of them are being manipulated to enrich special interests.  For example, if you can destroy Social Security then the financial institutions can help themselves to your "retirement" money if you have any. The same is true with Medicare and Medicaid.  With less universal coverage the more the "business" can make in profits and arbitrary bureaucracy of their own making.

What shall we do?

Well being a novice in petitions I'm not willing to lead.  But a petition might do the trick.  It can be done quickly and perhaps in time to give President Obama and the Congress a message.  The President will have his resolved stiffened.  The Congress may think twice about their subterfuge and see the handwriting on the wall for the next election in two years.

Any takers ...?

removing checks and balances is not the answer to anything. We already have chaos in Washington. Why add more? What is needed is removing the good old boy's down there the fifty year politicians who sit on there fat asses and racking the bounty of office.
