WASHINGTON -- Congressman Steve Stockman (R-Texas 36) demanded the White House stop releasing illegal aliens from federal custody as part of an administration effort to build public fear of Obama’s own sequestration plan and give him leverage to demand tax hikes.
“Obama is releasing illegals into the streets before his sequester in hopes of using fear as negotiating tactic for higher taxes. He’s literally placing American lives in danger for partisan gain,” said Stockman.
WASHINGTON -- Congressman Steve Stockman visited with Johnson Space Center officials today and outlined his plans to stop proposed cuts to NASA funding.
“Obama’s proposed sequester would be disastrous for NASA, which is already his punching bag,” said Stockman. “Not only can you increase NASA funding while balancing the budget, cutting spending, cutting taxes and reducing the debt, it’s the fiscally responsible thing to do. Every dollar spent on NASA produces real value for our economy and our defense.”
