WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today President Obama released his budget proposal for Fiscal Year (FY) 2017.  In response, U.S. Congressman Sam Johnson (TX-03) made the following statement:

“The one good thing I can say about President Obama’s budget proposal is that it will be his LAST budget proposal,” said Johnson.  “Unfortunately, it comes as no shock to see that Obama proposes more of the same: more spending, more taxes, and more debt.  This is WRONG.  At a time when our debt is over $19 trillion, Obama needs a reality check.  And House Republicans and I are going to give it to him.  In the coming weeks we’ll be hard at work writing a conservative budget to get our fiscal house in order.  Americans want, need, and deserve a budget that balances and stops passing on crushing debt to the next generation.”
