Cornyn Statement on the White House Budget

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) issued the following statement after the President released his budget, 65 days late.

"By delaying his budget and neglecting to meet his obligations, the President chose to lead from behind and put off the task of governing.

"Even with the extra time, the President has offered a budget that isn't serious about putting our nation back on a path to long-term economic growth. He's holding necessary reforms hostage to more tax increases, failing to take serious steps towards deficit reduction and pushing a budget that never balances."

 

Senator Cornyn serves on the Finance and Judiciary Committees. He serves as the top Republican on the Judiciary Committee's Immigration, Refugees and Border Security subcommittee. He served previously as Texas Attorney General, Texas Supreme Court Justice, and Bexar County District Judge.
