Manzullo: President's Disastrous Tax and Spend Policies will Stifle America's Economic Recovery

[WASHINGTON]  –  Congressman Don Manzullo issued the following statement today in response to the President’s FY 2013 budget proposal that calls for continued deficit spending and huge tax increases on Americans:
“The President just doesn’t get it. He continues to call for deficit spending as far as the eye can see, combined with tax increases on employers that will stifle job creation and delay our economic recovery. The only way we are going to strengthen our economy and help put Americans back to work is to slam the brakes on the unnecessary and unconstitutional spending that is continuing to drive our government deeper and deeper into debt.
“We need bold action, which is why I supported the Republican Study Committee budget last year that would have cut $9.1 trillion in spending over 10 years, strengthened Social Security and Medicare, reformed our tax code, and actually eliminated our budget deficit by the year 2020. We need to combine serious spending cuts with pro-jobs policies that will help our employers thrive again so they can put Americans back to work. My American Jobs Agenda offers a blueprint for strengthening our economy and helping employers create jobs.”
