Moran on Federal Budget
February 2, 2015

From Sen. Jerry Moran’s office:
continue his long history of higher taxes and more spending. The proposal includes a staggering $2.1 trillion in new tax increases and would add $8.5 trillion to the national debt.

“I will examine and evaluate the provisions of the President’s proposal, and I will work with my Senate colleagues to shape a federal budget that funds the government’s liabilities while facilitating a pro-jobs environment through critical decisions to reduce our debt and deficits. Especially when resources are scarce in an increasingly dangerous world, we must better prioritize spending to make certain our economy is growing and our citizens are protected. American safety and prosperity calls for serious policy – unfortunately, the President’s plan falls well short.”

Blunt on the Budget Proposal
February 2, 2015

From Roy Blunt’s office:
“I’m in discussions with my colleagues in the House and Senate to determine the best way forward to address our country’s overall infrastructure needs, as well as specific funding for a multi-year surface transportation bill, and to do so without raising gas taxes.

“Unlike the president’s proposal, my colleagues and I believe we can create a new innovative financing tool and have the resources to fund a six-year year highway bill at lower repatriation rates, which ultimately means a better deal for Americans and a better incentive to bring this money back home.”
