Conservative Leaders to Congress: Oppose Any Budget Deal That Raises Spending Levels or Increases Revenue

As budget negotiations between the House and Senate continue, we write to urge Congress to oppose any legislation that increases spending above current law or raises new federal revenue. According to reports, the House and Senate conference committee that was recently convened to negotiate the federal budget is considering a plan that would violate Congress’ […] America Needs A Real Budget Process

The government shutdown is over and the political elites in Washington, D.C. decided to pass a short-term budget, known as a Continuing Resolution, while fully funding Obamacare. They made sure furloughed federal employees will be paid for their 16-day vacation. Without giving the public a chance to read the compromise, members of Congress added lots […]

Obama’s Flawed Budget

President Obama’s Fiscal Year 2014 Budget was released today and it was more of the same Big Government spending. Of note, the proposed White House budget calls for $580 billion in additional taxes from American families.

We are a country that has nearly a $16.5 trillion national debt and President Obama is yet again failing at his duties. […]

Bigger and Bigger Deficits

More bad news shows the fiscal well-being of America is steadily on the decline. The government reported that May’s budget deficit was $125 billion. This catastrophic number is more than double the amount for the month of May just last year. At a time when the financial stability of our economy is delicate and the […]

Cagle Post: Three Years of Failure

The last time the United States Senate passed a budget was three years ago on April 29, 2009.

I have […]
