CONFERENCE REPORT ON H. CON. RES. 95, CONCURRENT RESOLUTION ON THE BUDGET FOR FISCAL YEAR 2006 -- (House of Representatives - April 28, 2005)

BREAK IN TRANSCRIPT

Mr. KIND. Mr. Speaker, I rise in rejection of this budget resolution because it continues to mortgage our children's future. A vote for this budget resolution tonight is a vote to continue the record budget deficits that we have seen over the last 4 years. A vote for this budget tonight is a vote that continuously raises the national debt automatically by a half a trillion dollars in this budget resolution for the fourth year in a row.

A vote for this budget continues the raid on the Social Security trust funds. And a vote for this budget continues our reliance on Japan and China being the largest purchaser of our government deficits today.

It also fails to invest in our students and our work force who need to compete in a 21st century global economy by cutting the education workforce by $12.7 billion.

Mr. Speaker, I believe we can do better for our children, for our students, for the workers of this country. Reject this budget resolution.
