Rep. Louie Gohmert (TX-01) released the following statement regarding President Obama's budget speech this afternoon at George Washington University:
"Today the President presented a budget plan that calls for higher taxes and even more spending. This budget reform map, designed to "win the future,' will only add to the already stratospheric $14 trillion national debt. Presented as a "nonpartisan' approach to solving this nation's debt crisis, President Obama instead delivered more wasteful spending and tax hikes that will only dim the hopes of a brighter future. I would have hoped after the massive bailouts and stimulus spending that exceeded anything ever attempted in the world's history, this administration should have learned that taking from those who earned and giving to the administration's supporters does not revive the economy. This plan will only shackle the dreams and prosperity of America's future generations. Real change can only occur by cutting out-of-control government spending."
