Editor's note: The following was published on 11/08/2005. We thought it appropriate to run it again. By Jon Kyl

Most of the time, Congress concerns itself with figuring out ways to spend money. Every now and again, we stop and focus on how to save it - in particular, how to reduce the federal deficit.

The last time Congress achieved big savings was the FY 1994 Budget Reconciliation Act, which included $55.8 billion in Medicare savings and a $102 billion freeze in discretionary spending. Now, we're close to completing a similar package with the goal of reducing the deficit. This is important because Congress has been spending too much money and the federal government has some added obligations to help repair the damage caused by Hurricane Katrina.

The bill to cut spending was derailed for a while when the Democratic leadership brought floor debate to a halt through a parliamentary stunt and forced us to spend more than three hours in closed (i.e. secret) session rehashing an investigation of pre-Iraq war intelligence.
