Washington, D.C. – Rep. Kevin Brady (R-TX), Chairman of the Joint Economic Committee, responded to today’s release of the President’s Fiscal Year 2015 Budget:

“Once again President Obama has failed to submit his budget on time and once again he has failed to submit a serious proposal to put our nation’s finances in order. Instead, the President has sent Congress a political document built on the same liberal proposals that are holding the economy back. In short, it’s a bigger government wish list – more spending, more taxes, more government.”

“Moreover, the Administration has gone out of its way to make analysis of their budget more difficult by failing to provide their data in spreadsheets. This begs the question—what is the Administration hiding?”

“We need to restore economic opportunity for all Americans by relying on the principles that made America the strongest, most prosperous nation on earth – individual liberty, limited government and a strong national defense. Not surprisingly, this budget points America in the wrong direction towards less freedom, less opportunity, and more power in the hands of Washington.”
