Democrats' Budget Breaks Spending, Tax Records

‘A narrow majority in Washington has passed a budget that provides for the largest tax hike in U.S. history and sets a new spending record - and supporters of this budget should not be proud of either'

U.S. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell released the following statement Wednesday regarding the Democrats' budget:

"At a time when American families are tightening their belts, Washington should be doing the same. Yet this budget would take more money - an average of $2,300 - out of the paychecks of middle class families to pay for over $1 trillion in non-emergency spending. With rising gas prices and economic concerns, Congress needs to lower taxes on working Americans and job creators and rein in wasteful Washington spending. Instead, a narrow majority in Washington has passed a budget that provides for the largest tax hike in U.S. history and sets a new spending record - and supporters of this budget should not be proud of either."
