Mr. BUCHANAN. Mr. Speaker, America stands on the brink of our Nation's first default in history. Our economy is struggling. The Federal Government borrows $188 million every hour of every day.
For too long, both parties have turned a blind eye to our government's budgetary mess. Washington needs to show the American people that we can deal with these challenges today and in the future. So far, it has failed to do so.
Congress and the President need to quit the partisan games and do what's in the best interest of America. The time to act is now. The American people demand nothing less.
