Congressmen offer analysis as the Senate approves legislation to end government shutdown

On an evening which saw the Senate approve legislation to end the government shutdown and avoid a potential default, on Wednesday night "Piers Morgan Live" invited Congressmen Xavier Becerra and Jack Kingston to join the program with live insight from Washington, D.C.

"Having voted three times to keep the government open with a CR two weeks ago, I think I've shown that I do not want the government to shut down, nor do I want the government to default," said Kingston, a Republican from Georgia who stated his plan to vote "no" on a deal to re-open the government and raise the debt ceiling. "For every dollar we spend, 42 cents is borrowed. We can't escape from that. This is just a skirmish compared to what lies ahead."

Standing directly to Kingston's right, Becerra offered his own analysis:

"This is crazy. This is not the way you run the smallest business on Main Street. It shouldn't be the way to run the largest economy in the world," said the Democrat from California. "This short-term budget? I don't like it, because it's actually the Republican numbers, on the budget, which cooks in the sequester, which we've been told by the Congressional Budget Office that is going to cost us some 800,000 jobs, so this slows down our economic growth. But you have to some to some common ground."

Watch the clip for more of Morgan's interview with the congressmen from opposite sides of the aisle, and for the next edition of "Piers Morgan Live," watch CNN every night at 9.

    Howdy this is kind of of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML. I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding skills so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    My developer is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses. But he's tryiong none the less. I've been using Movable-type on a number of websites for about a year and am concerned about switching to another platform. I have heard fantastic things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can import all my wordpress posts into it? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
