President Obama’s Budget is Alarming and Dangerous

Sacramento, CA – Tea Party Express, the nation’s largest Tea Party political action committee, is alarmed by the budget President Obama released today.

Tea Party Express Chief Strategist Sal Russo said, “This cannot be a serious budget proposal, and it’s alarming given America’s fiscal crisis. President Obama is proposing a dangerous increase in our national debt from the current $17 trillion to $25.4 trillion in 2023. President Obama and the Democrats cannot continue to ignore our debt crisis.

“Americans are struggling through one of the slowest recoveries in our nation’s history. Unfortunately, this budget shows Obama’s unwillingness to abandon his tax-and-spend policies, even though they continue to fail the American people. The President’s proposed $1.2 trillion in new taxes would be disastrous for the economy and the millions of people that are still out of work.

“The American people re-elected the President with expectations that he would take his job seriously. However, this budget suggests he has no interest in actually providing a realistic plan for America. It’s time politicians in D.C. get serious about the nation’s crippling debt and entitlement programs. We cannot continue to waste time with these hopeless budgets,” Russo concluded.
