ABSTRACT
The article presents debates on the U.S. debt and healthcare funding in the U.S. Congress as of June 2011. The Republicans and Democrats agreed on the need to reduce the budget deficit and to provide healthcare funding but disagreed on the use of taxes to increase revenues. Senate Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus argued for the positive impact of tax revenues while Republicans led by Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, Senate Minority Whip Jon Kyi and House Majority Leader Eric Cantor questioned the proposal to raise taxes.
