U.S. Sen. Jim Risch addressed both the House and Senate today, and brought a familiar message: Federal spending launching the nation toward a crisis. "I keep repeating because every American needs to know this," Risch said. "Every American needs to be familiar with the situation that's facing the country today." He said, "We can't keep spending the way we're spending."

House Speaker Lawerence Denney joked to Risch, "We will invite you back again when you have good news to tell us."
