Not a budget resolution
Says the U.S. Senate has passed "a budget" over the last three years "called the Budget Control Act."
$2.8B deposited into funds
Says Joe Kyrillos "voted to raid the state's pension funds by $2.8 billion that is costing New Jersey taxpayers still today to the tune of nearly $15 billion dollars to repay that money."
This budget’s balanced
"New Jersey alone, my home state, is facing a ten-and-a-half billion dollar shortfall in its 2012 fiscal budget. This means more cuts in state and local spending for education, which means our kids are hurt."
