U.S. Rep. Bob Gibbs (R-OH) calls on the Senate pass the budget that cleared the House last April during a news conference at the U.S. Capitol October 4, 2011 in Washington, DC. Noting that the Senate has not passed a budget in 888 days, Gibbs and fellow House GOP freshmen put forward their "Operation Turnaround," a slate of 12 House-passed bills they say will spur job growth, reduce regulation, shrink the national debt and balance the budget.
