President Obama’s Budget Proposal Offers More Of The Same

March 4, 2014
Press Release

WASHINGTON− Today, one month past the Constitution’s deadline, President Obama released his budget.  Congressman Chuck Fleischmann issued the following statement regarding the President’s Fiscal Year 2015 Budget proposal.

“Unfortunately, this budget proposal is just more of the same from President Obama.  It further maintains the status quo that is simply not good enough for the American people.  His budget weakens our national defense, does nothing to preserve or reform mandatory spending programs, and increases the tax burden on the American people with the sole intent of allowing Washington to spend more.  With three years left in his presidency, this budget is just further proof that the President has no desire to address the root of our fiscal challenges.”
