Senators Introduce the Congressional Budget Accountability Act

Senators Ben Nelson (D-NE) and Johnny Isakson (R-GA) have “introduced a bipartisan bill requiring that any money senators do not spend from their congressional office accounts go directly to paying down federal debt, instead of being returned to the Treasury for other government spending,” according to a press release.
