(CNS News) – When asked if Congress will ever balance the budget, given that President Joe Biden’s budget plan racks up $14.5 trillion in cumulative deficits over the next 10 years, Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) said, “It should.”

At the U.S. Capitol on June 10, CNS News asked Romney “President Biden has presented Congress with a budget that proposes running $14.5 trillion in deficits over the next decade. Will Congress ever balance the budget?”

Romney answered, “It should.”

When asked when that might happen, Romney said, “You have to look at the entitlement programs and make sure we have the revenue and expenses that are matched.”

CNS News also asked Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) the same question about Congress balancing the budget. He responded, “Well, that’s why we’re focused on holding down health care costs because health care costs are the biggest driver.”
