Alexander Issues Statement on President’s Budget
WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Rep. Rodney Alexander, R-Quitman, issued the following remarks regarding the President’s fiscal year 2012 Budget request, which was released today:
“This Valentine’s Day, President Obama gave America a bitter treat – his FY2012 Budget, which still reflects a heavy tax-and-spend governing agenda.
“The president’s rhetoric may suggest he understands it is time to get our financial house in order, but his proposal simply does not live up to the hype. We must move beyond words and follow a financial blueprint that is within our means.
“While the President has fallen short, House Republicans are working to provide our families and businesses the strong leadership and fiscal discipline they need and deserve.”
U.S. Rep. Rodney Alexander, R-Quitman, represents the 5th Congressional District and serves on the House Appropriations Committee.
