Congress ought to “lower the overall spending level” to keep faith with Americans concerned that government doesn’t work and the national debt keeps rising, Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, says.

Republican lawmakers, especially conservatives, are inclined to scrap the higher spending of the Boehner-Obama budget deal, Jordan told me in an on-camera interview at the Conservative Political Action Conference, or CPAC.

“Our position has been, let’s do a conservative budget,” he said. “We should pass what we believe is best for the American people, best for the families who elected us to come fight for the things they told us to.”
