@temzy - You asked, "How is Sen. LVdP uncomfortable with this resolution?" It will mean less government spending. How else are Democrats suppose to get votes?

How is Sen. LVdP uncomfortable with this resolution? Why should we not ask congress to balance the budget? We should ask the same thing of the Texas House and Texas Senate.

Will we ever stop underestimating our costs on Medicaid? We like to brag on our balanced budget, but do we?

I know we're amidst deep cuts here in Texas, but we WILL end with a balanced budget. Obama and Congress need to realize that a balanced federal budget is the surest, quickest way to economic recovery.
