WASHINGTON, D.C. - U.S. Senator John Boozman today delivered a speech on the Senate Floor questioning the Democratic-led Senate majority’s inaction on budget proposals and desire to cut spending.

"It’s been nearly 790 days without the majority in this chamber proposing a budget and it appears the majority isn’t anxious to work on one. The majority-led Budget Committee has failed to meet this year to begin working on a resolution."

Boozman discussed the need for fiscal reform citing economic troubles in countries around the globe and the latest warnings by the Congressional Budget Office.

"Our nation’s debt will exceed the size of the U.S. economy by 2021 and will double the size of our nation’s GDP within 25 years. This is not the way I want to leave this country for my kids, grandkids and the people of Arkansas."

Boozman encouraged spending reductions and urged President Obama to "take tax hikes off the table" and get to work reining in the reckless spending. 

WASHINGTON, D.C. - U.S. Senator John Boozman today spoke on the Senate Floor in support of commonsense legislation that creates a business friendly environment to encourage job growth.

“In November, Americans gave a clear sign that job creation needs to be a priority. Unfortunately the Senate Majority and President Obama have failed to prove this is at the top of the agenda. Time and time again the Senate and our President add to the uncertainty that is stifling job creation. Commonsense legislation that would create the conditions for job growth is not brought to the floor,” Boozman said in the speech. 

Boozman encouraged passage of the REINS Act, the pending free trade agreements and a full repeal of the President's health care takeover.

WASHINGTON –U.S. Senator John Boozman took to the floor of the U.S. Senate today to call attention to how our national debt threatens America’s sovereignty. 

Boozman began his speech discussing the need to remain vigilant against international terror in a post bin-Laden world.  He continued from there to note that there is another major threat to our sovereignty and that is one that has been created here at home—our ballooning national debt.

Washington’s reckless spending has shifted almost half of national debt to foreign creditors.  Boozman’s speech focused on who these foreign creditors are, how they do not share our same value system, and why this puts our country in a very precarious position.
