Oregon Congressman Greg Walden and fellow Republicans say they have a bulls eye on the nation's budget: “Our mission is to reduce the deficit, it's a $1.6 trillion according to the President. And we are going to fund this government and do the things that are necessary, but we are also going to extra the reforms that are long overdue, root out the waste and fraud, and cut spending.” Last week, the House of Representatives voted to extend government operations for another two weeks. Walden says the last session of Congress never brought a budget to the House floor, so this year, lawmakers are having to pass resolutions to keep the wheels turning.   He adds that it's high time lawmakers stop delaying the tough budget decisions that need to be made.
