BREAK IN TRANSCRIPT

Mr. ISAKSON. Mr. President, for 3 consecutive fiscal years, the leadership in the Senate majority party has consciously decided not to bring a budget to the floor of the Senate. Do you know what the result has been? We have spent $10.6 trillion and increased our debt over $4 trillion, while the American people have cut their debt, cut their spending, and gotten their house in order during our worst recession since the Great Depression.

It is time that the leadership of the Senate took a lesson from the American people. Let's get back to the business of America. Let's get a budget to the floor. Let's balance our budget.
