Senator Patty Murray (D-WA) floated a memo to her fellow Democrats on the Senate Budget Committee outlying the need for ′revenues to be included′ in their federal budget outline. This comes as House Republicans passed a measure extending the debt ceiling for four months under the condition that the Senate Democrats must pass a budget, something they have not done in about 1367 days. Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI), head of the House Budget Committee, will be sending a budget proposal shortly that will balance the budget within 10 years. Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) has been blocking any budgets from being passed in the Senate, but may be ready to let one go through now. Especially since Murray, Barack Obama, and he are all committed to raising more tax revenues. Also, as part of the new debt ceiling agreement, paychecks for members of Congress will be held in escrow until a budget is passed.
