    McCARTHY of California asked and was given permission to address the House for 1 minute.) Mr. McCARTHY of California. Madam Speaker, last night, I had hoped to hear from the President that he would challenge both Houses to pass the first priority--a budget. The House has done it. The Senate has not for the last 3 years.

    In this House, we talk a lot about the sluggish economy and our continual debt. We talk in trillions, so let's take the zeros away and talk in household income. If we were a household, we would, roughly, bring in $24,500 a year, but we would spend $35,500. That means we'd have to add $11,000 to the credit card each year, but when we'd look to the credit card, it would already have $160,000 on it.

    We have to get the House in order. The Senate has refused to pass a budget in 3 years. The time is now to move America forward.
