“After seven years of more spending, more taxes, and more debt, we all knew President Obama’s last budget would be yet another delusional, big government wish list, so it’s up to us in Congress to exercise our power of the purse to restore fiscal sanity in Washington."

Today, following President Obama’s budget announcement, U.S. Representative Cynthia Lummis (WY-At large) issued the following statement:

“The President’s final budget is what we expected: a reckless, political scheme to score legacy points and raise taxes on American families, failing to balance the budget or tackle our $19 trillion in national debt.

“After seven years of more spending, more taxes, and more debt, we all knew President Obama’s last budget would be yet another delusional, big government wish list, so it’s up to us in Congress to exercise our power of the purse to restore fiscal sanity in Washington.  Congress needs to roll up its sleeves and do the work necessary to cut spending, balance the budget, roll back federal overreach, restore the Constitution’s division of power, reform the tax code, and develop a pro-growth legislative agenda to meet the needs of hardworking Americans.”
