National Debt Depletion Amendment

By Douglas V. Gibbs

Help me get this amendment proposed by Congress, or let's have an Article V. Convention to make sure it gets put into place...

Any officeholder in the United States House of Representatives, United States Senate, U.S. Treasury, or the Office of the President of the United States who, during the time for which they were elected or appointed, voted in favor of, or was party to, carrying out any additional federal spending during the time they were appointed or elected that occurred during a presidential term that concluded during which time the national debt did not decrease, may not be a candidate for appointment, reelection or election to any office under the authority of the United States, or hold any office under any State, county, or city, unless such disability has been removed by three-quarters vote by each House of the United States Congress.

We can call it the National Debt Depletion Amendment (or, the Gibbs Amendment would work, too).
