WASHINGTON (WHTC) - Some might say it was another kicking of the proverbial can down the road, but the President’s signature on legislation that suspends the 16.4 trillion-dollar limit on federal borrowing until May gives Fred Upton and his Congressional colleagues more time to agree on reining in the budget. The St. Joseph Republican told WHTC News that he will be joining with other GOP majority members in the Lower Chamber this week in pushing legislation that would require the White House to submit a balanced budget proposal annually. For the fourth time in his five years in office, President Obama’s White House failed to submit a proposed spending plan to Capitol Hill by the first Monday in February, as required by law.
