SEC. 325. DEBT DISCLOSURE REQUIREMENT.

    (a) In General- It shall not be in order to consider a budget resolution in the Senate unless it contains a debt disclosure section including all, and only, the following disclosures regarding debt:

‘SEC. XX. DEBT DISCLOSURES.

    ‘(a) In General- The levels assumed in this budget resolution allow the gross Federal debt of the nation to rise/fall by $XXXXXX from the current year, fiscal year 20XX, to the fifth year of the budget window, fiscal year 20XX.

    ‘(b) Per Person- The levels assumed in this budget resolution allow the gross Federal debt of the nation to rise/fall by $XXXX on every United States citizen from the current year, fiscal year 20XX to the fifth year of the budget window, fiscal year 20XX.

    ‘(c) Social Security- The levels assumed in this budget resolution project that $XXXX of the Social Security surplus will be spent over the 5-year budget window, fiscal years 20XX through 20XX, on things other than Social Security.’.

    (b) Social Security- If any portion of the Social Security surplus is projected to be spent in any year or the gross Federal debt in the fifth year of the budget window is greater than the gross debt projected for the current year, as described in section 101(5) of this resolution, the report, print, or statement of managers accompanying the budget resolution shall contain a section that--

      (1) details the circumstances making it in the national interest to allow Federal debt to increase rather than taking steps to reduce the debt; and

      (2) provides a justification for allowing the surpluses in the Social Security Trust Fund to be spent on other functions of Government even as the baby boom generation retires, program costs are projected to rise dramatically, the debt owed to Social Security is about to come due, and the Trust Fund is projected to go insolvent.

    (c) Definitions- In this section, the term ‘gross Federal debt’ means the nominal levels of (or changes in the levels of) gross Federal debt (debt subject to limit as set forth in section 101(5) of this resolution) measured at the end of each fiscal year during the period of the budget, not debt as a percentage of gross domestic product, and not levels relative to baseline projections.

SEC. 326. DEBT DISCLOSURES.

    (a) In General- The levels assumed in this budget resolution allow the gross Federal debt of the nation to rise by $4,960,000,000,000 from the current year, fiscal year 2009, to the fifth year of the budget window, fiscal year 2014.

    (b) Per Person- The levels assumed in this budget resolution allow the gross Federal debt of the nation to rise by $16,200 on every United States citizen from the current year, fiscal year 2009, to the fifth year of the budget window, fiscal year 2014.

    (c) Social Security- The levels assumed in this budget resolution project that $700,000,000,000 of the Social Security surplus will be spent over the 5-year budget window, fiscal years 2010 through 2014, on things other than Social Security.

SEC. 327. EXERCISE OF RULEMAKING POWERS.

    Congress adopts the provisions of this title--

      (1) as an exercise of the rulemaking power of the Senate, and as such they shall be considered as part of the rules of the Senate and such rules shall supersede other rules only to the extent that they are inconsistent with such other rules; and

      (2) with full recognition of the constitutional right of the Senate to change those rules at any time, in the same manner, and to the same extent as is the case of any other rule of the Senate.

Passed the Senate April 2, 2009.
