Date: Feb. 9, 2016
Location: Washington, DC

Following the release of the President's proposed budget, Rep. Rich Nugent (FL-11) issued the following statement:

"President Obama's last ditch budget manifesto will contribute trillions of dollars to our nation's debt while directly undermining the needs of our economy and armed forces."

"It's the House's job to put forward a workable alternative. As an institution, we cannot fail to pass a budget. I am confident that under Speaker Ryan's leadership -- bringing the entire conference together -- the House will put forth a realistic and balanced approach, one that values job creation, a strengthened military and improved economic prospects for each and every American."
