Got a news release from Moran’s office in my inbox this morning.
WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Jerry Moran (R-Kan.), a member of the Senate Committee on Appropriations and one of the few members of Congress to vote against every stimulus and bailout bill, today introduced the “Recovering Excessive Stimulus Expenditures for Taxpayers” (RESET) Act, which would send unspent stimulus funds back to the U.S. Department of Treasury to be used for deficit reduction. The language of the RESET Act, originally introduced by U.S. Representative Sean Duffy (R-Wis.), is included in H.R. 1, the continuing resolution to fund the federal government for the last seven months of fiscal year 2011.
Veto bait for certain, but I like that Moran is trying to get the federal government to do what millions of Americans are trying to do — get out of debt.
Can we put Dave Ramsey in charge of the budget?
