BREAK IN TRANSCRIPT

Mr. JOHANNS. Mr. President, think about it--$5 trillion of new debt under this President. So when he submits a budget plan, what happens to it? On the floor of this Senate, the President's budget plan did not get a single vote. No Republican, no Democrat, no Independent supported the President. What happened on the House side? The same identical thing--no Republican, no Democrat, no Independent supported the President's plan. Many are working on this. Simpson-Bowles is a good example. Many of my colleagues have been working to find a way forward on our budget issues. And what happens on the floor of the Senate? No budget. Four years, no budget.

When Republicans come to the majority, we will pass a budget, we will work to balance our budget. That is where we are headed.
