WASHINGTON—U.S. Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL), Ranking Member of the Senate Budget Committee, released the following statement today ahead of the 1,200th day since the Senate Democrat majority last offered a budget plan to the American people:
“The Senate has adjourned for recess as we’re approaching 1,200 days since this Democrat majority has passed a budget. We’re adding $4 billion a day to the national debt. We’re facing a fourth straight deficit in excess of $1 trillion. Despite repeated warnings from the Inspector General, the IRS is sending billions in tax credits to illegal aliens. We’re $16 trillion in debt, but the USDA is partnering with Mexico to encourage non-citizens to sign up for welfare benefits. Meanwhile, the President continues his national campaign for a tax increase—even as his own budget shows the money will just be used to pay for even more new spending.
Washington is disconnected from reality. President Obama must stop focusing on taking more money from the private sector and get the public sector under control. That begins with the United States Senate outlining a financial plan for the future of this country—as the law requires.”
