Video: Gerry Connolly Speaks on Floor of the House About Reducing the Budget Deficit

Rep. Gerry Connolly spoke on the floor of the House of Representatives about reducing the deficit. As he points out in the speech, Gerry believes that Congress should use some of the TARP funds to pay down the deficit. This isn't a new position as he recently wrote a letter to Speaker Nancy Pelosi supporting this same move that was signed by 13 other freshmen members of Congress. This is an interesting connection because Connolly argues in his speech that the high deficits and fiscal irresponsibility of the Bush Administration at least part of the reason he (and other members of the Congress) was elected.
