I don't see any current GOP member who will risk their standing in the majority party to 'buck' the leadership by sponsoring this...but who know...
"The fact that we are here today to debate raising America's debt limit is a sign of leadership failure" - 2006 Senator Obama...leadership failure indeed!

I wonder which political lean hides the most around here, like Mitt did behind Ann's dress.
One generally cannot refute a well constructed and stated Conservative political argument with a modern American Liberal Argument and remain rational, I've noticed. This is because the liberal Argument will usually be made in denial of history, experience, and arithmetic, but will usually rely heavily upon supposition, assumption and fantasy. Virtually any such argument that includes a promise that something desirable will be provided "free," or that anything government proposes will remain within the budget established for it at its inception, will fit this description.
