Congressmen Ami Bera, David Cicilline, Rodney Davis and Adam Kinzinger talk problem solving.
SOME KNOW IT'S TIME TO START FIXING: At least some senators know the system is broken. That's why No Labels is high-fiving Senator Mark Pryor for noting the absurdity of the current budget process and calling for reform. Senator Joe Lieberman acknowledged the same thing when he took to the Senate floor yesterday and proposed a commission to look into revising the 1974 Budget Act which sets budgetary guidelines for Congress. That's an idea No Labels is supporting.
DEBT NEWS UPDATE: In the latest debt news, House Speaker John Boehner wants to restart the debt-limit debate, the Senate failed to agree on a budget plan, Mitt Romney made a major speech on the debt and no one can agree on how bad the fiscal cliff will be. "Robert Greenstein, the president of the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, seemed to feel as if it might be sort of like bungee jumping. (“It is quite possible that we go over the cliff but only for a very short period ...”) Others, like Representative Kevin Brady of Texas, have a more negative attitude. (“It makes no sense to get even close to that cliff.”)" Gail Collins for The New York Times: Fun Plans for Summer Vacation
