Senate Republicans comment on Democrats' failure to address the nation's soaring debt and urge the president to step up and work with Republicans to cut spending and put our nation on a path to fiscal responsibility.
Republicans have put forth a plan to begin to put our nation back on a path of fiscal responsibility and create an environment in which job creation can flourish. Unfortunately, Democrats are opposing Republicans at every turn and ignoring the concerns of Americans, who are eager for the government to get out of the way of job creators and stop spending more than it takes in.
The president recently put forward a budget that not only fails to address the serious financial challenges facing our nation but also continues to add to our nation's debt. Senate Republicans are urging Congress and the president to realize that we have to stop spending money we don't have if we want to put our nation on a path to fiscal health and create an environment in which businesses can grow and create jobs.
Instead of focusing on the American people's priorities -- namely, jobs and reducing government spending -- Democrats are continuing to endanger job creation by defending their budget-busting health care legislation and planning even more unnecessary spending. Senate Republicans are committed to reducing the cost of health care, cutting spending, and creating an environment where businesses can grow and create jobs.
The American people are tired of Washington's big-spending ways and are calling for action to reduce the deficit. Senate Republicans are committed to taking action to cut spending and remove government obstacles to private-sector job creation.
