Santorum Responds To Obama Budget

VERONA, PA - Former presidential candidate, U.S. Senator, and current Chairman of Patriot Voices Rick Santorum issued the following statement in response to the Obama Administration's budget submission.

Rick Santorum said: "President Obama's new budget is not new at all, it's just more of the same.  Not only was it a month late, but the President's budget is anything but serious.  Instead of moving toward a balanced budget, this proposal spends more than our government can afford, taxes American families more than they should, while gutting our military at a time of international turmoil." 

"During the President's term, nearly $7 trillion dollars has been added to our national debt.  Today's proposal increases spending by over 60% over the next 10 years and never even reaches balance.  That is unsustainable.  We need a budget that is fiscally responsible and a government that lives within its means. We need to address the looming entitlement crisis, not place additional taxes and spending on to the backs of working Americans. The President's proposal is irresponsible and shows an utter disregard for average working families," concluded Santorum.
