Press Release: Sali Applauds Bush for Talking Tax Cuts and Fiscal Discipline, Hopes Congress will Follow Through

January 28th, 2008 by Halli


WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Bill Sali tonight applauded President Bush for highlighting the need to cut taxes and return to fiscal discipline in Washington, D.C. Sali said Congress must now put an end to partisan bickering and start working to achieve the results demanded by the American people.

“President Bush is right on when he says the people’s trust in their government has been undermined. It’s been undermined by the abuse of congressional earmarks. It’s been undermined by partisan bickering, out of control spending, programs that don’t work, taxes that are too high and the failure to act on important matters like immigration reform,” Sali said.

“A smaller federal government leaves more money in the hands of its citizens, and that is what we need to keep America strong and vibrant,” said Sali. Sali, one of the leaders of efforts to reform Congress, was delighted to hear that the President is directing his agencies to ignore earmarks that were never fully vetted by Congress. Sali was also pleased to hear Bush mention the need for immigration reform, but wished the President had during the speech called for secure borders without amnesty for illegal aliens.

“Immigration reform without amnesty must be a priority in 2008. Americans are tired to waiting for secure borders. Many of our industries, especially agriculture, are tired of twisting in the wind waiting for Congress to approve a predictable system for temporary workers to enter this country legally. Now is the time for this failure to be corrected,” said Sali.
