Why are people saying that a balanced Federal Budget won't work?

I think the proposal to have balanced budget on a Federal level is a great idea - we wouldn't be in the mess we're in if we had to do this all along. Right now Congress expects us to spend money on things that we can't afford to pay for as a country. It seems so logical to have a balanced budget, just like we do at home or sort of pretend to do as a state.
But the media and Obama (whom I voted for but will not again) are saying that it's not workable / not possible. Why not?? It's doesn't even sound like it would even happen all at once . . .
