Instead, this week Senate Democrats released a budget that grows the government, not the economy, and calls for a $1.5 trillion tax hike on Americans. Their plan isn't a credible budget. It's a license to spend more and tax more. The Senate Democrats' budget would: Increase the national debt to over $24 trillion by the end of the 10-year budget period; Include up to a $1.5 trillion tax increase on Americans. This tax hike is in addition to another trillion dollars of new taxes scheduled to go into effect as part of Obamacare; Increase spending by nearly 62 percent. Next year alone, the Senate budget increases spending $162 billion above what the federal government is spending today. Never bring the national debt below 90 percent of our economy and instead projects the debt will eclipse 100 percent of Gross Domestic Product (GDP) for the next four years. With 23 million people in our country looking for work and record-high debt, I don't know how Senate Democrats can present this plan to the American people with a straight face. Our priority must be to grow the economy, get Americans back to work and reduce the burden of debt on future generations. This budget fails on all accounts. _____ Fighting to Defund Obamacare This week I supported an amendment, introduced by Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas), to withhold funding for Obamacare. The amendment was offered during debate on legislation to fund the federal government through the rest of the fiscal year. Obamacare burdens Hoosier families and businesses with higher costs and unaffordable taxes, strains state budgets and puts America deeper into debt. Although the amendment failed to pass the Senate, I will not waiver from my commitment to Hoosiers to fight for a repeal of Obamacare so we can replace it with a health care system that puts patients first, increases the quality of care and decreases costs.
