Rep. Ed Royce (R-CA) issued the following statement in response to President Obama's Fiscal Year 2013 budget request:
"For the fourth straight year this nation will have a $1 trillion-plus deficit. The President's response? Spend more, tax more and borrow more. In fact, under this budget request the President will add nearly $6 trillion to our nation's bloated debt (more than any other president).
"The President's budget does nothing to address our nation's most pressing issue -- our massive deficits. Instead of putting forth a serious budget, one that offers solutions for long-term economic growth, the President continues to recycle failed policies.
"I will continue to fight to cut spending. It's critical for job creation and economic revitalization."
