Obama’s Budget Would “Mortgage America’s Future,” Westerman says

WASHINGTON – February 10, 2016 – (RealEstateRama) — Congressman Bruce Westerman (AR-04), a member of the House Committee on the Budget, issued the following statement Tuesday (Feb. 9) after the release of President Barack Obama’s proposed Fiscal Year 2017 budget.

“Congress has just started our review of the president’s proposed budget, but already we can see the president is not working in reality but instead has created a budget based in fantasy,” Westerman said. “The president called this budget ‘a road map to a future that embodies America’s values and aspirations.’ How does the president’s proposed $6.1 trillion in deficit spending over the next decade embody America’s values and aspirations? His proposed budget, which is a non-starter, would continue a policy that will further mortgage America’s future if it were implemented.”
