US Representative Sue Myrick (NC-09) released the following statement today’s vote on the Fiscal Year 2010 budget:

“How is increasing taxes by $1.5 trillion over ten years, increasing discretionary spending by 8.6 percent, and bringing our total national debt to $17.1 trillion considered a responsible thing to do in this economy? I voted for a Republican Budget Alternative that controls spending, decreases taxes for families and small businesses, and stops putting trillions of debt on the shoulders of our children and grandchildren.”
