“Senator Pryor needs to get his priorities straight, stop complaining and start working with Congressional Republicans to pass a responsible budget. It’s obvious Sen. Pryor and his fellow Democrats have no plan and don’t want to be held accountable to anything with Barack Obama’s name on it. While Republicans are fighting for hardworking Arkansas taxpayers, Democrats like Senator Pryor are fighting to keep their own jobs.”
On Wednesday, the Democratic-controlled U.S. Senate, with the help of Senator Pryor, also defeated a budget plan already passed by the House of Representatives.
“Senator Pryor should be embarrassed that the Democrat-led Senate hasn’t passed a budget in over three years,” said Vasilos. “Unfortunately, Arkansas’ senior Senator won’t stand for anything when it comes to solving our nation’s debt and jobs crisis. Not passing a budget is simply unacceptable and unsustainable, the American people deserve better.”
