Congressman Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) issued the following statement regarding President Obama's Fiscal Year 2015 Budget proposal.
"While millions of Americans struggle to find work in the Obama economy, President Obama is doubling down on his failed tax and spend policies. We have the lowest labor force participation rate in four decades with more people leaving that job market than entering. The President's proposed budget only exacerbates the reality that this Administration's policies are squeezing the middle class and stifling economic growth. American taxpayers are tired of Washington bureaucrats repeatedly taking more of their hard-earned money just so this Administration can quench their thirst for higher spending. That is why I continue to fight for real solutions that will reduce regulation, lower taxes, and clear the path for the private sector to create jobs and get our economy going again."
