Rep. Joe Barton released the following statement after President Obama finally released his budget proposal Wednesday morning:
"It took the President an extra two months to put forth a "new' budget plan that is really just more of the same -- it raises taxes, increases spending, adds to the national debt and never balances.
"Our nation's financial woes are serious and unfortunately the President hasn't offered serious solutions.
"House Republicans have approved a plan that doesn't just reduce the deficit -- we eliminate it. The formula is simple. We target wasteful Washington spending, eliminate ObamaCare, fix our broken tax code to create jobs and increase pay, protect important priorities like Social Security and Medicare, prioritize national security and protect programs like Medicaid so they can deliver on their promises."
