Burr Statement on Fiscal Year 2011 Budget

U.S. Senator Richard Burr (R-North Carolina) today issued the following statement on the President's proposed budget for Fiscal Year 2011:

"The $3.8 trillion federal budget released by the White House today is not only historic in size, but ignores our growing debt obligation that will suffocate the next generation. It contains billions of dollars in new spending and higher taxes for American families and businesses. The American people are rightfully very upset with the level of spending and growing debt coming out of Washington. It is time we stop passing the responsibility to future generations and make the tough decisions necessary to get our spending habits under control."
