How Many More Embarrassments Can Barber’s Party’s Failed Spending Agenda Take?

After Obama’s Deficit-Filled Budget Received No Support In Either Chamber, It Is Time For Democrats To Switch Gears

WASHINGTON — Arizona families have watched Ron Barber’s Democrat allies in Washington preside over yearly trillion dollar deficits, push a wasteful almost trillion dollar stimulus package and impose a government takeover of healthcare that cuts $500 billion from Medicare to fuel Democrats’ spending addiction. Their agenda of taxing, borrowing and spending has crippled economic recovery and left small business owners with no ability to grow and hire workers.

“President Obama’s budget suffered an embarrassing defeat this week when it received no votes in the Senate, giving it no support in either chamber,” said NRCC Communications Director Paul Lindsay. “It is clear that Ron Barber’s party’s insistence on spending, taxing and borrowing has become so toxic with the American people that even they cannot vote for their own failed agenda that has made our economy worse.”

The President’s budget proposal received not one vote of support in Congress:

“President Obama’s budget suffered a second embarrassing defeat Wednesday, when senators voted 99-0 to reject it.

“Coupled with the House’s rejection in March, 414-0, that means Mr. Obama’s budget has failed to win a single vote in support this year.” (Stephen Dinan, “Obama budget defeated 99-0 in Senate,” The Washington Times, 5/16/2012)

A CBO report affirms the Democrats’ record-setting spending spree will continue to stifle economic growth:

“The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office said Friday that President Obama’s 2013 budget will hurt the economy in the long term, arguing the larger deficits it would produce would reduce the amount of capital available to businesses. After five years, the CBO says, the Obama proposals would reduce economic output by between 0.5 percent and 2.2 percent.” (Erik Wasson, “CBO estimates Obama’s 2013 budget plan would hit economic growth,” The Hill, 4/20/12)
