Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) is poised to become the chairman of the Budget Committee if Republicans keep the Senate. He said he wants to create a new commission to propose ways to reduce the deficit and address the country’s debt.
“I think we’ve got to understand that we’re going to be raising the debt ceiling in perpetuity if we don’t find a way to bend the curve,” Graham said.
The battle over spending could quickly come to a head with fights looming over budgets, pandemic spending and the debt ceiling, which was suspended under a deal between Trump and Congress. It is set to be reinstated at the end of July.

What could go wrong...
At least someone is thinking about it!!!!!!!
There is no way to “bend the curve” without cutting “entitlement” spending drastically. And American voters will never stand for that.
The coming crash is therefore inevitable.
...reduce the deficit... Oh, how I love quaint nostalgia...
Well at least he is FINALLY OFF the judiciary committee CYA his entire damn ass!! He has been protecting Joe from the get go!!!
Need at least 100 more Trumps in both houses to even get a start on that.
So all those promises to hold everyone “accountable” for the persecution of this administration were definitely lies. He likely had no intention of doing so.
It’s pie in the sky.
Poor Lindsey having to explain this mess to the people..
“ There is no way to “bend the curve” without cutting “entitlement” spending “
You mean cut Social Security? During the campaign, when Biden and the Democrats were accusing Trump and the GOP of wanting to do that, many Freepers said the Dems were lying. But you’re saying we should prove the Dems right, and cut Social Security?
Lindsey is a typical Joe Biden republican. He, like countless other repubs had years to reduce spending and fix it. Now he is only gonna act like it matters because there isn’t a repub in the wh going forward.
If he would be as effective on the finance committee as he was on the judiciary, nothing will be done! I just hope they appoint someone on judicuary that exposes both Graham and McCain as the traitors they bith are.
Lindsey will cut some deal like always and it won’t be good.
The Rs will increase the social security age limit to 78 for citizens while continuing the steady flow of US tax benefits to illegals. It’s the fiscal conservative way!
I don't see either of these options happening.
Linda can GFHSelf...
He did get Barret through along with a lot of judges.
He wants to save money by giving amnesty to 30 million illegal aliens......./s
let’s cut the costs of fake investigations
Notice China Mitch has not shot down the idea of amnesty. He could and he won’t. Handwriting is on the wall there.
We are currently 27 trillion dollars in debt:
