Senator David Perdue Calls For Fiscal Responsibility

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA) today called for fiscal responsibility, as President Obama released yet another budget that never balances and adds to the national debt. In a statement, Senator Perdue said: 

“The President’s budget drastically misses the mark. Once again, the President proposes his Washington-knows-best approach of higher taxes, more spending, and bigger government. Handing our kids and grandkids even more debt like this is downright irresponsible.

“Georgians sent me to the Senate to stop this insanity, and finally take some serious steps to tackle our full-blown fiscal crisis now – not down the road. We already have a growing debt of $18 trillion, plus tens of trillions of dollars of unfunded future liabilities – that is unsustainable.

“We need a new path that moves toward a balanced budget. I am fully committed to fight every day to cut out-of-control spending and make the federal government more efficient, effective, and accountable to the American people.”
