Congressman Terry Says No to Nightmare of a Budget

Today Congressman Lee Terry (R-NE) voted against S. Con. Res. 70, The Concurrent Budget Resolution for 2009. The measure passed 214-210.

"More spending, more taxes and zero reform, that's not a budget, that's a nightmare. This budget includes tax increases on married couples, children and small businesses. The American people deserve better. At a time when most people are already feeling pain at the pump, higher grocery prices and increasing medical bills the last thing they need is to be taxed even more. I for one will not stand for it," said Congressman Terry.

The budget raises taxes by at least $683 billion over the next five years. The plan calls for the elimination of the 10-percent bracket for lower-income taxpayers, higher taxes for marriage, children and small businesses. The plan also includes higher tax rates on investments. Plus the Democratic budget includes more than $1 trillion in discretionary spending.
