ROSKAM STATEMENT ON THE PRESIDENT'S FY '08 BUDGET
Congressman Peter J. Roskam (R-IL) today released the following statement in response to President Bush's Fiscal Year 2008 Budget.
"It is imperative that the federal government reach a balanced budget without raising taxes on hard-working American families. Some argue that tax breaks are the reason for the budget deficit. I fully reject that notion. The current tax breaks have increased federal receipts. Out of control federal spending is the cause, and until we stop recklessly spending the taxpayers' dollars and end our spendthrift ways, that debt will continue to grow. We do not have a revenue problem in Washington, we have a spending problem."
