Congress set to ignore the President’s budget

Senate Budget Committee Chairman Mike Enzi (R-WY) and House Budget Committee Chairman Tom Price (R-GA) have said they do not plan to hold hearings with Shaun Donovan, the White House’s budget director, to review the president’s fiscal 2017 budget.
 
This would be the first time in over 20 years that Congressional leaders refuse to hold a hearing on the president’s budget proposal.
 
Enzi pushed back against critics who claimed that Republicans’ refusal to hold a hearing on the president’s budget proposal is an “outrageous” move against tackling budgetary reform.
 
The Congressman from Wyoming says he assumes that President Obama’s budget will be full of “new spending proposals instead of confronting our government’s massive overspending and debt.”
 
Obama’s proposal is scheduled to be released tomorrow.
