Sessions sees White House meetings as delaying tactic

"It has been 740 days since the Democrat Senate has passed a budget. This week Senate Democrats were finally going to unveil their plan for saving this nation from fiscal disaster and present that plan in the Senate Budget Committee ... And now, by calling for this summit, it would seem the president has effectively cancelled this week’s planned unveiling of the Democrat budget," he added.

Sessions points out that the White House has not fleshed out its April budget speech.

"In its rhetoric the White House calls for a responsible budget but refuses to present one. No amount of closed-door meetings, commissions, or summits will change the basic fact that in order to move forward the White House and the Democrat Senate must put forward an honest plan that ends the Washington spending spree instead of raising taxes to pay for it,” he said.
