Sen. Rob Portman (R-OH) Delivers Weekly GOP Address On The President's Budget
Washington - 02/07/2015: In the Weekly Republican Address, U.S. Sen. Rob Portman of Ohio says President Obama failed to make the tough choices in his federal budget blueprint for fiscal year 2016, proposing $1 trillion in higher spending and $8.5 trillion in new debt.
“Instead of proposing polices that could help grow the economy, President Obama’s budget grows the government,” Portman says. “And his budget never balances. Not in five years. Not in ten years. Not ever.” Senate Republicans will offer a significantly different budget proposal in the coming weeks that Portman says would cut waste, spend smarter and recognize that Americans are already paying enough in taxes. “It will be a blueprint—not only for how the government spends our money each year—but for a brighter future of better jobs, higher wages, and greater opportunity for everyone,” Portman says. - gop.gov
