Report: By Supporting Unbalanced Budget, Maloney Will Cost New York Families Over $3,000 Each
NRCC To Maloney: Denounce Dem Budget Or Hurt New York’s Middle Class
WASHINGTON – Senate Democrats introduced their budget last week—their first in four years. However, a closer inspection found that not only does the budget never balance, it actually includes higher taxes and a new stimulus.
If Sean Patrick Maloney supports this disastrous budget, a report shows that he will cost New York families over $3,000 each. The National Republican Congressional Committee is calling on Maloney and his Democrat allies to denounce this budget and its devastating effects on New York families.
“By supporting Barack Obama and Nancy Pelosi’s liberal agenda, Sean Patrick Maloney has hurt New York’s middle class, said NRCC Communications Director Andrea Bozek. “Adding salt to the wound, by supporting the Senate Democrats’ budget, he would cost each New York family over $3,000.”

Senator Murray’s Budget Includes $100 Billion In New Stimulus Spending. “But since Murray’s budget also sets aside $100 billion for economic stimulus measures — $50 billion on repairing highest transportation priorities, $10 billion on projects of major regional importance and the rest on other items like worker training — the total savings will be measured at $1.85 trillion.” (Sam Stein, “Senate Democrats’ Budget Includes $1.85 Trillion In Savings Through Mix Of Tax Increases, Spending Cuts,” The Huffington Post, 3/12/13)

Murray’s Budget Also Would Not Balance The Budget—Unlike Paul Ryan’s Plan. “The Murray plan would not balance the budget in a 10-year timeframe like the Ryan proposal, which calls for $4.63 trillion in deficit savings over 10 years.” (Manu Raju, “Patty Murray Budget: $1 Trillion In New Revenue,” Politico, 3/12/13)
Senate Democrats Last Passed A Budget On April 29, 2009. “The Senate last passed a traditional budget on April 29, 2009, and lawmakers have relied on short-term stopgap measures to fund the federal government’s operations since the measure expired.” (Chris Moody, “House Republicans To Senate Democrats: Pass A Budget And We’ll Increase The Debt Limit,” Yahoo News, 1/18/13)
