Mr. TIPTON. Mr. Speaker, we've all heard the statement ``a day late and a dollar short.'' Well, the President is now 2 months late with his budget and billions of dollars short. It's clear, this President wants to balance the increase of government on the backs of the American people. He believes that government needs the resources more than hardworking Americans.
We put forward a budget to be able to protect our senior citizens, to be able to build for the future for our children. The real approach, when we're talking about balance, is to have a budget that truly balances.
This administration continues to grow government, continues to waste the hardworking dollars of the American taxpayer.
Let's stand up and put politics aside and stand up for the people of this country and put forward a budget that will truly put America back to work.
