House freshmen warn what’s coming in Obama budget Monday

CPAC video: “The biggest cause of debt nationwide and in the states — entitlements.”

Two of the eighty-plus Republican freshmen in the House of Representatives took time off from the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) to warn that President Obama’s budget scheduled for release Monday will contain “more of the same”– attempts to tax higher wage-earners and to make deep cuts to the military.
 
Speaking jointly to HUMAN EVENTS, Reps. Mike Pompeo (Kan.) and Ann Marie Buerkle (N.Y.) said that they expected the president’s budget to contain much of what he spoke of in his State of the Union address last month.

“A trillion-dollar deficit, and little-bitty things from the State of the Union address” is how Pompeo described what he and his colleagues expect to get from the White House on Monday.
 
New York’s Buerkle agreed, adding that the deficit would not begin to be dealt with until the White House and Congress addressed what she called “the biggest cause of debt nationwide and in the state–entitlements.”
 
Both Buerkle and Pompeo were elected last year with the backing of conservative activists and the growing “tea party movement” in their respective districts.
