Duffy statement on President's budget


WASHINGTON DC (PRESS RELEASE) U.S. Congressman Sean Duffy issued the following statement reacting to the President's budget for Fiscal Year 2012:

"These are serious times for our nation: we have a massive national debt of $14 trillion and are projected to borrow more than $1.6 trillion this year alone.

"During these difficult times, Wisconsinites and Americans have made the tough choices and painful cuts necessary to survive and Washington should do the same. Sadly, the President's budget is more of the reckless borrowing and spending that will continue to cost jobs and slow our economic recovery.

"We cannot grow the economy by growing the size of government. This budget is simply more of the same: more borrowing, more spending, and more taxes. What we need are pro-growth policies that will empower the private sector to innovate and invest and get our families back to work. We need real political leadership that will restrain the size and scope of government and enact policies that will put us back on the road to prosperity."
