U.S. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell released the following statement Saturday morning regarding the Senate Democrats' Fiscal Year 2014 Budget Resolution that would grow the government, not the economy:
"Although Senate Democrats finally generated a budget after four years, the plan they produced raises taxes, increases spending and debt and never, ever balances. Top Washington Democrats said they simply don't care about balancing the budget anymore, and it certainly shows in this tax and spend proposal. This budget is a rehash of the extreme policies that continue to hobble the economy and crush the middle class. The only good news is that the fiscal path the Democrats laid out in their Budget Resolution won't become law."
Background: The Senate narrowly passed the Democrats' budget, 50-49.
