U.S. Congressman Greg Walden of Oregon says the Senate's failure to pass a budget in four years given the House an opportunity to chip away at frivolous spending.
Speaking on the “Lou Dobbs Show” Tuesday, Walden says the Senate's budget just doesn't go far enough.
"Rip Van Winkle woke up. It’s been all these years. They had to blow the dust off the manuals on how to put together a budget over in the Senate. But you remember the continuing resolution, we actually cut a billion dollars out of Obama Care there. We denied the IRS money to hire all these new agents to implement it, from their perspective. So we're chipping away at his every chance we get, because we think there's a better way to reform health care and make sure Americans get that opportunity going forward."
Walden says he's looking forward to hearing what the President has to say when he visits Congress Wednesday, but that his "charm offensive" isn't working on them.
