Lawmakers differing on reaching a budget agreement to avoid financial crisis

Congress must find a budget agreement by October to avoid cuts in programs that Door and Kewaunee county residents depend on.  Wisconsin lawmakers disagree on how the budget efforts are going. Democratic U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin believes Congress will get to work on the budget sooner rather than later and finish the job on time.



Republican 8th District U.S. Representative Mike Gallagher, who represents Door and Kewaunee counties, is not as optimistic based on what he's seen.  Gallagher says failure to reach a new spending plan and raise the debt ceiling could be catastrophic.


Since the first World War, Congress has tried to limit federal borrowing and has routinely raised the borrowing limit as the US government debt has grown.
