WASHINGTON- Congressman Bob Latta (R-Bowling Green), a member of the House Committee on the Budget, made the following statement after voting against the FY2010 Federal Budget Conference Committee report.

"Unfortunately, the Conference Committee did nothing to improve the budget. This budget still contains a $423 billion tax increase over the next five years and a spending plan that will double the national deficit in five years and triple it in the next ten. The Democrat Leadership and Obama Administration have once again presented a budget
that the United States simply cannot afford. This budget spends the highest amount of taxpayer dollars in U.S. history, aside from World War II, and sends our nation further into debt that will be passed directly on to our future generations that will be forced to pay for this out of control spending policy."
