NRSC - As National Debt Skyrockets Past $13 Trillion, Hodes, Washington Democrats Fail To Produce Budget

Announcement By Hodes’ Washington Party Boss Underscores Voters’ Fears Of Democrats’ Reckless Spending, Debt

WASHINGTON – As the national debt skyrockets past $13 trillion, The Hill reports that U.S. Representative Paul Hodes (D-NH) and his Democrat colleagues in Congress will not even attempt to produce a budget resolution in 2010.

The House has produced a federal budget every year since 1974, when current rules were put into place. The Democrats’ failure to fulfill their most basic responsibility underscores the fear held by many New Hampshire voters regarding the Democrats’ out-of-control spending and subsequent debt.

“As our national spending and debt spiral out of control, it’s inexcusable that Paul Hodes and his fellow Washington Democrats can’t be bothered to even produce a budget this year,” said National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) spokeswoman Amber Marchand. “New Hampshire families make sacrifices to live within their means, yet Hodes and his party bosses don’t feel like they should be forced to fulfill their most basic responsibility as they continue to rubberstamp a reckless spending agenda in Washington.”
