Rep. Stewart Reacts to the President's Budget Proposal

Mar 4, 2014
Press Release

Washington, D.C. – Following the release of President Obama's budget proposal for Fiscal Year 2015, Rep. Chris Stewart (R-UT), issued the following statement:

"While I am still in the process of fully reviewing the President's proposed budget - it obviously falls short. Not only does his proposal increase total spending by 63 percent and add $8.3 trillion to our debt over the next 10 years, it also proposes $1.8 trillion in increased taxes. This is not the right direction for our country. A bigger, more intrusive government – which this budget proposes— is not going to spur our economy and create jobs. Instead, we must carefully prioritize spending and tackle the drivers of our debt, ultimately creating a better America for future generations."
