U.S. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell issued the following statement Wednesday after the Senate voted 99 -- 0 against President Obama's budget proposal:
"Once again, the Senate spoke unanimously against the President's unserious budget. For three years, Senate Democrats have refused to produce a budget, as required by law. And today, they soundly rejected the President's budget proposal which spends too much, taxes too much and borrows too much. But that's not surprising when you consider just how bad the President's budget is. It's bad for jobs because it includes the biggest tax hike in history, it's bad for seniors because it lets Medicare and Social Security become insolvent and it's bad for our economy because it fails to address the nation's $15 trillion debt."
