President's Budget Increases Taxes, Destroys Jobs and Spends Money We Don't Have


WASHINGTON, D.C., February 13, 2012 - House Natural Resources Committee Chairman Doc Hastings released the following statement regarding President Obama’s Fiscal Year 2013 budget proposal:

“The President’s budget represents more of the same failed policies from the Obama Administration that will cost American jobs and harm our economy. Increased government spending and higher taxes is not the way to economic recovery. Page after page of the President’s budget contains examples of the Obama Administration’s misplaced priorities. Instead of promoting new American energy production, this budget will make energy more expensive for American families and small businesses by imposing new taxes and fees. Instead of reducing spending, this budget will spend millions of taxpayer dollars to buy more federal land even though we can’t afford to properly maintain the land we already own. The President’s budget ignores our growing national debt when we should be looking for ways to conserve scarce taxpayer dollars and decrease spending.”
