BBA and Enumerated Powers

All  suggested forms of a Balanced Budget Amendment (BBA) legalize spending which is now unconstitutional. Balanced Budget Amendments fundamentally change the design of the Constitution by amending out the enumerated powers limitation on federal spending, and transform the federal government into one of general and unlimited powers.

In other words, it increases the power of the federal government to include whatever is put into the budget. See the following article:
