Cornyn Response to Senate Democrats’ $2 Trillion Tax Hike Proposal

Today I released this statement following reports that Senate Budget Committee Democrats released their budget proposal to their Democrat colleagues and members of the media, before holding a public hearing:
After nearly two years, Senate Budget Chairman Kent Conrad emerged with a budget outline containing a $2 trillion tax increase. Yesterday President Obama acknowledged he wants to get the debt ceiling crisis ‘off the table’ and move on to more stimulus spending.
The motives of Democrats are becoming clear: raise the debt ceiling, increase taxes and continue the out-of-control spending binge in Washington.
