SACRAMENTO, CA – U.S. Senate candidate Carly Fiorina today issued the following statement regarding President Obama’s $3.8 trillion budget proposal presented this morning:
“The budget the President presented today builds on failed policies that have resulted in massive increases in federal spending, ballooning deficits and increasing the debt we are leaving to our children and grandchildren by trillions of dollars. This is the wrong policy for our nation’s economy both in the short and long term.
“The budget is a roadmap for the future. Unfortunately, the President did not take the opportunity today to set us on a path toward a sound fiscal future. This budget only further mortgages our nation’s future by pushing our national debt to its highest level in history.
“There are two ways to get rid of our deficit and get control of our debt: cut spending and grow the economy. If our leaders in Washington are serious about economic recovery and job creation, I urge them to set aside the President’s proposal and instead make the tough decisions necessary to rein in out-of-control spending and support our nation’s true job creators: the entrepreneurs and small businesses that will lead our nation to recovery.”
