McConnell: Congress is on a Trillion-Dollar Spending Spree

‘Massive spending and crushing debt are not the answers to a recession, and neither are tax hikes on working families and job creators’

WASHINGTON, D.C. - U.S. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell made the following statement Wednesday regarding the Democrats’ budget:

“While families across the country are tightening their belts and carefully watching every dollar, Congress is on a trillion-dollar spending spree.

“The same Democrats who were outraged over last year’s deficit just voted for a budget this year that will lead to twice as large trillion-dollar deficits and double the debt in just five years.

“Americans don’t understand how a giant expansion of government will help create or preserve jobs, or why the same Democrats who showed strong support on the Senate floor for Republican proposals to protect small businesses and middle class taxpayers, dropped those proposals once behind closed doors.

“Massive spending and crushing debt are not the answers to a recession, and neither are tax hikes on working families and job creators.”
