The sheer cost of government is apparent to every American who is putting the finishing touches on their taxes, according to U.S. Senator Mike Enzi, R-Wyo., who said that Tax Day is another unwelcome reminder that the federal government taxes and spends too much. Enzi issued the following comments today: 

“Every year American taxpayers see the size and the cost of government grow. Despite promises by President Obama to cut the deficit in half by the end of his first term, his policies have increased the national debt by nearly $5 trillion and seek to impose massive tax increases to keep his spending priorities alive. Taxpayers should not be punished for Washington’s inaction and unwillingness to spend within its means.

“For years, we have tried to hide it, disguise it, and ignore it.  We have acted like it is okay to keep spending money that we don’t have. The reality is that we have spent every last tax dollar and even the money we have borrowed from countries like China. That’s not the message American’s want to hear on Tax Day, but it’s the truth.”
