Congressional Budget Overspends, Overtaxes
Washington, DC — OMB Director Jim Nussle issued the following statement regarding the final Congressional budget.
“The President took a principled stand for fiscal responsibility and has communicated clearly that spending beyond his reasonable and responsible levels will be met with a veto. Keeping spending in check is the only way we can drive down the deficit and get the budget under control. The Congressional budget missed the memo.”
