WASHINGTON—U.S. Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL), Ranking Member of the Senate Budget Committee, issued the following statement today after every member of the Democrat Conference voted to reject every budget the Senate considered, including President Obama’s:
“Today, before the whole nation, the majority party running the Senate effectively declared that as long as they’re in charge this country will not have a budget.
Their message is simple: Send Washington more money. Don’t ask us what we’ll do with it. They’re determined to avoid public accountability as our nation spends its way to financial disaster.
The decision by all Democrats to vote against all budgets, to stop the full budget debate the Senate is required by law to have, reflects their support for Majority Leader Reid’s view that to have a budget is ‘foolish.’ It is a vote of their entire caucus to keep this nation on our unsustainable debt course.”
