WASHINGTON, D.C. – A study released Wednesday by the National Taxpayers Union Foundation (NTUF) revealed that the legislative agenda of Senator Dan Coats (R-Ind.) during the 113th Congress’ First Session would have cut a net $101.4 billion from the federal budget if enacted.
Additionally, the study found that Senator Coats was one of only 17 members of the Senate to propose more spending decreases than increases.
“Making tough fiscal choices is the only way to stabilize the nation’s long-term financial future,” said Coats. “This is why I came back to the Senate, and I will continue to work on solutions to our fiscal crisis.”
The NTUF study found that all legislation proposed during the 113th Congress’ First Session would have added a net $1.09 trillion to the federal budget if enacted.
