Senator Scott Statement on the President’s Budget

Washington – U.S. Senator Tim Scott (R-SC) today issued the following statement regarding President Barack Obama’s 2015 budget proposal, which the White House released earlier today.

“I had hoped to see a budget proposal from the President that shows he fully understands our nation’s current fiscal situation, as well as the fact that the American people, not the federal government, power this nation.

Instead, we see a budget which drives us further into debt, takes more money out of the pockets of the American people, decreases our military readiness, and does nothing to ensure that critical entitlements will be sustainable for the next generation.

The President is signaling once again that he is unwilling to work across the aisle to compromise on the issues that matter most-his budget is a partisan playbook with no basis in our economic reality.”
