The Dems' Budget Is Not the Answer (Sen. John Ensign)

The Democrats’ budget is not the answer because it raises taxes to pay for more spending. Passing along this enormous debt to our children and grandchildren is irresponsible, especially considering that the Democrats' budget calls for the largest tax hike in American history. This is just another example of Democrats in the Senate breaking their campaign promises. Already they've ignored promises to work in a bipartisan manner; to promote open, honest government; and to support our troops. This time their hypocrisy will add $2 trillion to the national debt at a time when fiscal responsibility needs to be a top priority. America needs to move toward smaller, more efficient government, and this plan pushes America in the wrong direction at the expense of taxpayers.
