Some In Congress Still Trying to Think Outside the Box

It’s notable that these fresh ideas are also coming from freshmen – but freshmen who are choosing not to recycle the same failed ideas ad infinitum.
When compared with trillions of dollars of debt, these changes can seem like a drop in the bucket. But taken together, the savings do add up – and maybe more importantly the plans are a real culture change in Washington that both goes against the status quo flow the House and Senate leadership are pursuing and takes the idea of stewardship, when it comes to our tax dollars, seriously.
