The republican plan going forward is that there will not be a long term debt ceiling increase until the House and the Senate pass a budget. I presume they will not allow a default if no budget is done, which could mean a series of 3 month type deals. How do you feel about that? Personally, I'm good with this idea. I don't see why the Senate should be allowed to get away with going more than 3 years without passing a budget. I mean, that's what they're supposed to do, the House passes a budget, the Senate passes theirs, and they work out a compromise. But I also think a passed budget should also automatically extend the debt ceiling.
