Sessions: Exactly Three Years Since Senate Majority Last Adopted A Budget

WASHINGTON—U.S. Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL), Ranking Member of the Senate Budget Committee, issued the following statement today about April 29th, the three-year anniversary of the last time the Democrat-led Senate passed a budget resolution:

“This Sunday marks exactly three years since the last time the Senate’s Democrat majority adopted a budget. For three years, in the midst of fiscal crisis, the party running the Senate refused to even attempt to produce their financial plan in willful and knowing defiance of the law. They have proven themselves unworthy to lead.

President Obama must finally exercise managerial discipline and demand that his own party’s Senate leaders produce their plan for the country. Until then, neither he nor his Senate majority has any business asking the American people to send one more dime in new taxes to this dysfunctional government.”
