Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz, No Labels Co-Founders John Avlon, Robert S. Kaplan and Lisa Borders along with President of the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget Maya MacGuineas participate in a conversation with America.
Former Utah Governor and No Labels Honorary Co-Chair Jon Huntsman (R-UT) talks on Morning Joe about how the No Labels Problem Solvers coalition is working to change the culture in Washington from one of the blame game and finger pointing to one of problem solving.
Every business, every home has a budget. Even if we don’t write it down, we all know we have to balance our spending and income and make decisions about what we can afford. Making a budget for our country is one of Congress’ most important jobs. But it hasn’t passed a full budget or required spending bills on time since 1995.
In my opinion, Congress’ most basic responsibility is deciding how much money the government takes in and how much it spends. Congress only passed all government spending bills on time four times since 1952 and it has been more than 1,000 days since Congress passed a concurrent budget resolution.
