COLLINS VOTES TO HOLD OBAMA ACCOUNTABLE TO AMERICAN TAXPAYERS

Says more transparency in the budget process is welcomed and needed

WASHINGTON, D.C.– Representative Doug Collins (R-GA) has voted to increase transparency in the federal budget process. Legislation voted on the House Floor today sponsored by Representative Luke Messer (R-IN) would require the President’s budget proposal to include a cost per-taxpayer of the annual deficit each year that budget is projected to be in deficit.

“The American people have paid the price of failed leadership in Washington for far too long,” Collins said. “While it’s easy to get caught up in the emotion of the moment, the facts are easy to understand. President Obama’s out-of-control spending habits are crippling our economy and placing an unquestionable amount of financial hardship on my children and yours. Every American taxpayer deserves to know the individual price tag our Commander-in-chief is creating through his inaction to balance a federal budget and ignite our national economy.”
