Congressman Bill Shuster issued the following statement in response to President Barack Obama's proposed budget:
"Once again the President is leading from behind. Today the President released his proposed budget, two months late and it's the same plan that we rejected last year. The President refuses to even propose a balanced budget. All he has to offer are more tax hikes. His cuts are inadequate and do nothing to move this country closer to the goal of a balanced budget. President Obama's budget will never balance and will only keep our country on a path to never ending deficits."
