Now that the tax issue has been resolved, reining in out-of-control government spending is now the focus. One way to control spending and the growth of government is for Congress to pass a budget - something Senate Democrats haven't done in nearly 4 years. With more than $5 trillion added to the debt since then, the time is now to end Washington's spending addition and for Senate Democrats to fulfill their legal obligation to pass a budget.
US Senator John Thune (RS.D.), Chairman of the Senate Republican Conference, earlier today spoke on the Senate floor to criticize the Democrat-led Senate's lack of fiscal discipline that led to the current fiscal crisis, as well as Democrats' continued instance to tax more so Washington can spend more.
