By the way, what happened to the House Bill? If the house is the only one that can vote on such a bill and they do not enact such a bill what happens to the hostage?

Did the house shoot down their own bill?

The debt continues to rise due to interest payments left over since the last decades.

If you want to reduce the debt, end the Bush tax cuts now, and balance the ledger. Then go after the tax code and end subsidies to businesses that show Billions in profits.

The growing debt is partly from interest payments these last decades. Congress passes a budget, then starts a war (or two) off budget.
Yuo can only balance the budget when you balance the ledger and end the Bush tax cuts, end payments to profitable Corp and rewrite the tax code and eliminate the many loopholes.

To "Itsjstmeagain" the Bush tax cuts expired at the end of 2010. We have not had those for nearly 3 years now.

We have the Obama tax cuts.

Look at it this way, we have not had a Federal Budget set by Congress since Obama was elected, and none of the liberals care. In that time we have seen Obama give all sorts of tax cuts and money to his favored supporting companies, like GE.

If you want to fix things, don't take the profits away from business, reduce the size and scope of the government. You can't corrupt something that does not exist. Plus, it will put more eyes on the remaining government departments.
