Posted on February 9, 2016

WASHINGTON, Feb. 9, 2016 – U.S. Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) today released the following statement on President Obama’s $4.15 trillion budget request for fiscal year 2017:

“Once again, President Obama’s proposed budget spends too much, taxes too much, and borrows too much, and won’t go anywhere in a Republican Congress. Instead of confronting our $19 trillion federal debt, President Obama wants to keep us on an unsustainable fiscal path that would pass along even more debt to future generations.”
