McConnell Statement on the President’s Budget

WASHINGTON, D.C.U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell issued the following statement regarding the President’s budget:

“President Obama promised in the State of the Union to deliver a budget filled with ‘ideas that are practical, not partisan.’ Unfortunately, what we saw this morning was another top-down, backward-looking document that caters to powerful political bosses on the Left and never balances—ever. The new Congress will focus on ways to help the Middle Class instead as we work to pass the serious kind of budget all Americans deserve: one that roots out and reforms wasteful spending, and that aims to grow Middle-Class jobs and opportunity instead of Washington’s bureaucracy.

“We’re asking the President to abandon the tax-and-spend ways of yesterday and join us in this practical and future-oriented approach.”
