Finally, members of Congress had an opportunity to come together to make a sound choice regarding the federal budget.

Instead, they chose to stand together to rob the treasury, opting to back-up the money truck and take what they wanted with no regard for the future repercussions of their fiscally irresponsible decision.

Tom McClintock is one member of Congress who believes in the simple notion that the government should not spend more than it takes in.  

McClintock, who voted “no” on the budget bill earlier this morning, joined Armstrong & Getty to talk about the recklessness on display in Washington and why it severely undermines the economic benefits of the tax overhaul.
