U.S. Rep. Phil Roe indicates President Barack Obama’s proposed $3.9 trillion 2015 budget plan won’t fly with House Republicans although Roe adds Congress will not go back to passing temporary continuing budget resolutions.
Obama’s budget plan calls for fresh spending to boost economic growth but also aims to raise taxes on the rich and further limit payments to health- care providers.
Roe, R-Tenn., points out the spending plan would shrink the military and increase funding to support the administration’s climate change plan, which he believes is a continuing war on coal.
He further contends the budget blueprint adds $8.3 trillion to the national debt over 10 years.
