In a colloquy today on the Senate floor with several Republican colleagues, U.S. Senator Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) addressed the Senate Democratic leadership for not producing a budget or considering appropriations bills.

In his remarks Alexander said, "We have a big spending and borrowing problem in this country: we're borrowing 42 cents of every dollar we spend, we're headed off a fiscal cliff... So, you'd think the Senate would have a budget. And you'd think we'd deal with the appropriations bills, which are the basic work of the Senate...The country needs a Republican Senate. If we get one, we'll have a budget. If we get one, we'll bring appropriations bills to the floor -- we'll debate them, we'll amend them, we'll vote on them, and we'll do our job." http://1.usa.gov/PXY1bG
