Staci Appel-sauce for brains --
With Congress set to go on recess for the rest of the year at week’s end, we still do not have a long-term budget deal in place. Iowans can’t afford this do nothing Congress, but Congressman Latham and his allies seem determined to take run out the clock and bring us a step closer to another shutdown.
Actually, we probably can afford a "do nothing Congress" better than a Congress that continually spends more than it takes in and the scientific community is united in that fact.
So far through the first two months of fiscal 2014, the government has spent $612 billion and taken in $380 billion
Thanks in a large part to sequestration, the federal deficit was down $61 billion, or more than 20 percent in the first two months of fiscal 2014.
Bipartisanship seeks to scuttle that with an agreement that partially repeal the sequester and raise agency spending to roughly $1.015 trillion in fiscal 2014 and 2015.
But the deal would do nothing to trim the debt, which is now larger, as a percentage of the economy, than at any point in U.S. history except during World War II.
Appel continued her appeal with this paragraph --
Please join me today in demanding that Congress put forward a budget deal before they go home and make sure America doesn’t have to suffer through another shutdown.
