WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Roger Wicker, R-Miss., a member of the Senate Budget Committee, today issued the following statement regarding President Obama’s budget for fiscal year 2016:
“President Obama is doubling down on the same tired tax-and-spend policies of the past. In the next ten years, we could be paying more money in interest than any other federal expenditure. Americans know that the Administration’s top-down approach does not work. These policies have stifled the middle-class and led to the weakest economic recovery in decades.
“In the coming weeks, Senate and House Republicans will begin turning the page by developing a budget plan that works for the American people – one that reforms the tax code, reduces spending, and controls debt.”
