From October 18, 2021, includes “The most recent example of Congress voting on a balanced budget amendment to the U.S. Constitution occurred on April 12, 2018.  By a margin of 233 to 184, the House majority leadership failed to muster the 2/3 vote (290) needed to pass H. J. Res. 2, the proposed constitutional amendment. … the measure would significantly harm the economy, result in a government default and force severe cuts in Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid and other vital federal programs.”
