"Pass a Budget if You Want a Debt Ceiling Increase"....? Hey Repubs, how about no increase in Federal debt ceiling? Even if the Demonrats manage to produce a budget! The ONLY way out of our fiscal mess is to CUT FEDERAL GOV'T SPENDING! Once the federal gov't makes the necessary spending cuts, then the individual states can decide if/how they want to make up for the reduced Fed spending.

Round two of another fiscal crisis is already underway as debate over raising the nation's borrowing limit, better known as the debt ceiling, heats up. Majority leader Harry Reid has blatantly ignored the law by failing to introduce a budget for more than 1300 days. House Republicans on the other hand have fullfilled their duty to the law by introducing and passing a budget every year since Obama has been in office.  As Byron York points out, Reid's actions could give Republicans some leverage when it comes to satisfy Presindent Obama's request to increased borrowing (and spending) ability.
