Legislative Branch

Balance the Budget.

If the Presdient pledged to veto every unbalanced budget, and followed through with this threat for two terms...

or Congress could simply pass a balanced budget bill, maybe for only ten years just to see how it works. However, it is not in any individual legislator's interest to balance the budget. This is the classic "tragedy of the commons" secnario where we all see that conservation is necessary, but each person has a vested interest in consuming the common good.
