Indiana’s 4th District Congressman says Washington should use Indiana as its example. Todd Rokita says the proposal the President outlined last night in his State of the Union address to freeze discretionary spending doesn’t go far enough.
“We need to get to the get to here. This republic will not survive on its current course,” said Rokita.
Rokita says the President is only freezing one third of the spending. Rokita’s plan is not only to go back to 2008 levels across the board, but to take another 15 percent across the board which is what Indiana did.
In a written statement released after the President’s speech, 9th District Congressman Todd Young joined Rokita in calling for a reduction in government spending. Young says as a member of the budget committee, he will work to “shrink the size and intrusiveness of our federal government.”
