WASHINGTON, DC - OCTOBER 04: Rep. Mike Kelly (R-PA) stands behind three toy Magic 8 Balls lined up on the podium, to note the 888 days since the Senate has passed a budget, during a news conference where about 20 members of the House of Representatives Republican freshman class called on the Senate to take up the budget that passed the House last April at the U.S. Capitol October 4, 2011 in Washington, DC. The 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.
