Sen. Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) on Tuesday slammed Senate Democrats for refusing to tackle a new budget.
“[Senate Majority Leader] Harry Reid [D-Nev.] has said so far this will be another year where they will ignore their statutory obligation, and an obligation based on decency, to do a budget,” Toomey told MSNBC.
But Toomey promised that the Senate GOP “would be voting” on a budget this year.
“Republicans will be voting on a budget that Republicans support,” he said. “It may be the House Republican budget; it may be our own budget; we may have several budgets like we did last year.”
Toomey appeared on MSNBC to criticize President Obama’s proposed budget as a “failure of leadership” that did not address the deficit or entitlement reform.
