Blue Dog Coalition Leadership Statement on President Obama's FY2015 Budget Proposal
The leadership of the Blue Dog Coalition issued the following statement today in response to the release of the President’s FY2015 budget proposal:
“As we review the President’s proposed budget, the Blue Dog Coalition remains committed to working in a bipartisan manner to enact policies that address America’s long-term debt and deficit. We recognize the importance of fixing our nation’s crumbling infrastructure and focusing on workforce development and job training programs, but we also see merit in revisiting big, bold budget plans that rein in government spending, reform our financially-distressed entitlement programs, and put us on a path to greater economic prosperity.”
The fiscally conservative Democratic Blue Dog Coalition was formed in 1995 with the goal of representing the center of the House of Representatives and appealing to the mainstream values of the American public. The Blue Dogs are dedicated to a core set of beliefs that transcend partisan politics, including a deep commitment to the financial stability and national security of the United States.
