On Tuesday, January 22, 2013, U.S. Senator Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) spoke about the greatest responsibility facing elected officials in Washington: tackling the national debt and deficits. Sen. Moran believes the first step toward righting America’s fiscal course is passing a budget and sticking to it. His remarks were made at the weekly Senate Republican Leadership Press Conference – his first as Chairman of the National Senatorial Republican Committee.
