WASHINGTON, DC - Montana Republican Steve Daines says Washington could learn a lot from Big Sky Country in dealing with the nation's budget woes.
The freshman representative urged that a solution to the sequestration could come from taking common sense principles used in Montana, and during a press conference with house leaders, Daines addressed stabilizing the country's fiscal problems.
"In fact, were running a surplus in my home state. I think we can take some of those ideas back to here to Washington. We can take the ideas from a hardworking mom that represent back in Montana that a single mom trying to raise a couple of kids. She knows that she can't spend more than she takes in. Its unsustainable and that is the story here back in Washington," he said.
Daines also said the reason he left the private sector was because he saw the looming financial crisis in America.
