The Moment of Truth

Recommendation from Bi-partisan Debt Commission.

RECOMMENDATION 1.3: ENFORCE CAPS THROUGH TWO MECHANISMS — POINT OF ORDER AND ABATEMENT. Require a separate non-amendable vote in House and 60 vote point of order in Senate to spend above the caps. If caps are exceeded, impose across-the-board abatement by the amount appropriations exceed the caps.

This would help Congress police itself.
