Each year since becoming president, Barack Obama has released unrealistic and irresponsible budget proposals—and it looks like he saved his worst for last. His $4 trillion proposal requests a $3.4 trillion tax increase that would hurt low-income and middle-class families while never balancing the budget. With the national deficit already topping $19 trillion, you can be sure that this liberal wish list is dead on arrival. The President's budget proposal underfunds our military at a time when the world is becoming more dangerous. And it fails to address serious problems in the VA. For instance, $969 million would be redirected away from the Choice Act, a program our veterans like and need. This is a slap in the face to our nation's veterans considering the recent revelations about the serious problems taking place at our Colorado Springs CBOC. This is once again a missed opportunity for stewardship of taxpayer dollars. Instead of more overspending, we need a detailed plan to rein in the federal bureaucracy, reduce regulatory burdens, fully fund our military, and provide for our veterans. That is what our country needs, and that is what I intend to continue to fight for. http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2016/02/09/obama-to-release-4-trillion-plus-budget-for-2017.html
