Price: ‘Unrestrained deficit spending … threatens to drown America’s prospects for future prosperity’

ATLANTA — U.S. Rep. Tom Price, R-Ga., this week said he supports a plan that would, in part, roll back federal spending to 2008 levels.
 
“Unrestrained deficit spending is a tsunami that threatens to drown America's prospects for future prosperity,” Price said in a statement. “The red ink is so overwhelming that this year Democrats cancelled the budget altogether. Such recklessness weakens confidence in America's fiscal health and puts families and businesses on the defensive.”
 
Under the plan, initially offered up by House Republican Leader John Boehner, non-security discretionary spending would return to 2008 levels and current tax rates would be frozen for two years.
 
“Most Americans can see the common sense in these proposals,” Price said. “Time is running out, however, and any further delay from President Obama will leave our economy struggling for air. We must not allow a Lame Duck Congress to push through more bloated spending and job-killing tax policies after the November election.”
