South Dakota Senator John Thune says President Obama’s proposed 2015 budget doesn’t address the country’s economic problems…

 

Thune says the proposed budget breaks the budget caps that the President has supported twice before…

 

Thune says the proposed budget contains a backdoor energy tax, cuts for the National Guard and fails to move the Lewis and Clark water project forward. He said he wants to see a repeal of the medical device tax, approval of the Keystone XL pipeline and enactment of Trade Promotion Authority.
