Rep. Frelinghuysen Reacts To The President's 2011 Budget

Press Release

Location: Unknown

"The budget the President delivered to Congress today is truly one for the history books. It spends more than any other budget in history, creates the largest budget deficits in history, which will result in the largest tax increase in history.

"Both the size of the budget - $3.8 trillion -- and the size of the deficit - $1.6 trillion -- are unacceptable. The President's three year partial spending "freeze' is more symbolism than substance. It is not sufficient and Democrats and Republicans should be working together to go over this document line by line to root out waste and unnecessary spending.

"This budget spends too much, borrows too much and taxes too much. In my view, this bloated, unbalanced budget request should be rejected by Congress."
