Washington, DC –Jim Manley, Spokesman for Nevada Senator Harry Reid, released the following statement today in advance of Senate Republicans holding a press conference to posture on fiscal responsibility:
“Getting a lecture from Republicans about fiscal responsibility is like getting investment advice from Bernie Madoff. These same Republicans are pushing millionaire tax giveaways that will double our deficit and force us to pay nearly one trillion in additional interest to countries like China. The first thing they could do to curb spending is to stop pushing deficit-exploding giveaways to millionaires and CEOs who ship American jobs overseas, but I doubt you will hear that from them at their press conference today.”
