Senator David Perdue: This So Called-Budget Should Be Taken With A Grain Of Salt

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA), a member of the Senate Budget Committee, comments on the budget resolution passed by the Committee today:

“This so called-budget should be taken with a grain of salt. It’s not being used as a budgetary tool to control spending because these budgets are resolutions, not laws. I’ve been saying this for two years: the entire budget process is broken. There is no better example of this problem than what we’re doing now. The only reason we are doing the budget this way is to get a technical structure in place so we can get tax done this year. I’m not willing to jeopardize our chances to get tax done, otherwise, I wouldn’t be going along with this sham.”
