WASHINGTON, D.C. – House Democratic Whip Steny Hoyer released the following statement today strongly criticizing the restrictive process in which the House Republican leadership is permitting floor debate on the FSC/ETI corporate sales tax bill:

“Once again today, we see that the Republicans’ high-minded talk about fairness and openness on this house floor was only so much hot air.  Lest anyone be mistaken, the so-called “Republican Revolution” is long dead and long gone.

Democrats were in a full-court press yesterday, criticizing President Bush for an administration document they say directs federal agencies to prepare preliminary 2006 budgets that cut spending for education, veterans benefits and other key programs after the 2004 election.

The document from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) is meant as a guide to federal agencies as they begin to prepare their budget proposals for the 2006 fiscal year. The Washington Post first reported the memo yesterday.
