Congressman Collins Reacts to President’s FY 2016 Budget Request

Feb 2, 2015
Press Release

Congressman Chris Collins today issued the following statement after President Obama released his FY 2016 budget request.

“Old habits die hard,” said Congressman Collins. “Just three years ago, President Obama agreed to budget levels that address our nation's spending addiction and ballooning deficit. Now, he's abandoned that promise and proposed a 7% percent spending increase. Rather than promote pro-growth policies that create a favorable environment for job creation, the president’s budget looks to spend our way to economic growth. This flawed approach will only increase the deficit and worsen the financial burden on our children and grandchildren. Families across the country are being forced to make hard decisions to live within their means. It's time President Obama learned to do the same.”
