Gretchen Hamel, executive director of Public Notice, joins Kilmeade and Friends on Fox News Radio to discuss the differences between the House and Senate budgets, as well as the cuts seen so far as a result of the sequester.
After a marathon voting session over the weekend, the Senate finally did what it hasn’t done in the last four years: passed a budget proposal. And after that, it was only fitting that the majority and minority leaders took to the Senate floor to do their own “chicken dance.” But before we get too carried away, it’s worth taking a closer look at whether Saturday’s “Herculean feat” is really a cause for celebration.
Lenwood Brooks, policy director of Public Notice, joins Bill LuMaye to discuss how Washington has to address mandatory spending before it’s too late, as well as the differences between the House and Senate budget plans.
The Senate on early Saturday passed its first budget in four years. The budget does not balance, includes $975 billion in new taxes, stops the sequester and increases spending.
Has the word “balance” lost all meaning in Washington? The White House says a “balanced approach” must include entitlement reform. The Senate wants a “balanced approach” that leaves entitlements alone. Neither one actually balances the budget, but Republican and Democratic plans from the House promise just that. Just another example of confusing rhetoric intended to obscure business as usual.
Yesterday, Rep. Paul Ryan, chairman of the House Budget Committee, put forth his budget proposal. Meanwhile, Senate Democrats are expected to propose their budget sometime today. Lenwood Brooks, policy director at Public Notice, joins Ernest Istook on Istook Live to discuss the budget proposals, as well as the need for entitlement reform.
Lenwood Brooks, policy director at Public Notice, joins Ringside Politics with Jeff Crouere to discuss the results of the sequester and wasteful spending that could be cut to offset it.
It’s been three years since the Senate passed a budget. Bankrupting America, a project of Public Notice, urges the Senate to take action and do their job in a new video. Gretchen Hamel, executive director of Public Notice, gives an exclusive first look at the video on Your World with Neil Cavuto.
This afternoon, President Obama is in Florida, a key battleground state, addressing the economy and taxes. Ahead of a Monday Senate vote and as Americans are filing their taxes, the President will discuss the so-called “Buffett Rule” which boosts taxes on millionaires with a focus on fairness.
