Senator Steve Daines today released the following statement on President Obama’s budget proposal:

“President Obama’s budget is full of the same failed policies that has led our country down a path of reckless bloated spending, burdensome regulations and higher taxes. This is President Obama’s eighth consecutive unbalanced budget that only serves to bolster his liberal agenda instead of lifting up hardworking American families. The American people deserve real solutions and a balanced budget – not an unworkable liberal messaging document.”

The first bill Daines introduced in both the Senate and House is the Balanced Budget Accountability Act, which strengthens accountability in Washington by requiring members of Congress to pass budgets that balance within ten years, or see their pay terminated.
