the phrase "down the road"

At some point, Washington has to deal with its spending problem. I've watched them kick this can down the road for the 22 years that I've been here. I've had enough of it.
what is "down the road"?

    It means to put something off and not deal with it. So it is saying that Washington continues to ignore this problem but not dealing with it. Hope that helps!
