                               RESOLUTION


 
  Expressing the sense of the House of Representatives that Congress 
should retain its authority to borrow money on the credit of the United 
            States and not cede this power to the President.

Whereas, on November 29, 2012, the Secretary of the Treasury, on behalf of the 
        President, proposed that Congress should surrender its authority to 
        establish the debt limit of the United States to the executive branch: 
        Now, therefore, be it
    Resolved, That it is the sense of the House of Representatives that 
the Congress should retain its authority vested in article 1, section 8 
of the Constitution to ``borrow money on the credit of the United 
States'' and not provide the executive branch with exclusive power to 
issue debt on behalf of the United States Government.
