    FOXX asked and was given permission to address the House for 1 minute and to revise and extend her remarks.) Ms. FOXX. Mr. Speaker, families budget, small businesses budget, cities budget, churches budget, schools budget, my state of North Carolina budgets, but Washington does not.

    Instead, year after year, budgetless Washington spends every single cent of the money it takes from the American people and $1 trillion more.

    Not since 2009 has the Democrat Senate bothered to pass a budget, and not since 2010 has President Obama submitted his plan for a budget on time.

    When you don't plan, it's easy to overcommit. And when a country overcommits year after year after year, it ends up $16.4 trillion in debt.

    That debt doesn't just rob our future; it hurts Americans looking for jobs today. While government spending ballooned, 8.5 million more people have given up looking for work since 2009.

    Mr. Speaker, the unchecked spending has got to stop. It's time to get this government on a budget. It's time for the President to submit a credible plan.
