Representative Ann Marie Buerkle (NY-25) released the following statement marking three years since the Senate passed a budget.
"Yesterday marked exactly three years since the Democrat-led Senate passed a budget. Our country is in the midst of a fiscal crisis and the Senate fails to act. The American people should be outraged at this embarrassing failure of leadership.
"While the Senate continues to put our nation at risk by not addressing our spending problem, the House, for two years in a row, has passed a budget proposal; a proposal that will allow our country to prosper now without leaving a burdensome debt to our children and grandchildren.
"I urge President Obama to demand that his party's leadership in the Senate act to produce a financial plan for our country. The Senate continues to lack the moral fortitude to put forth a spending plan for our nation."
