President Obama’s budget doesn’t address our long term public debt problem. Brett commented on it to the Bowling Green Daily News…
U.S. Rep. Brett Guthrie, R-Bowling Green, told the Daily News on Monday he’s concerned that President Barack Obama’s budget proposal doesn’t address the country’s long-term debt.
The Obama administration’s budget that was issued Monday estimates the deficit will drop to $901 billion next year – still requiring the government to borrow 24 cents of every dollar it spends – and would settle in the $600-plus billion range by 2015, according to The Associated Press. The deficit for the current budget year, which ends Sept. 30, would hit $1.3 trillion, nearly a record and the fourth straight year the United States would be more than a trillion dollars in the red.
“It’s disappointing; we have to solve this problem,” Guthrie said.

Tax policies, regulatory burdens and tort costs are threats to manufacturing in the United States.
That was the consensus of some who testified during a congressional forum on manufacturing hosted Monday in Washington, D.C., by U.S. Rep. Brett Guthrie, R-Bowling Green.
The Bowling Green Daily News caught up with Brett Guthrie to talk about what he’s reading…
Currently, Guthrie is reading “Eisenhower” by historian Geoffrey Perret.
After a recent visit to Gettysburg National Military Park and the farm that was Dwight Eisenhower’s summer White House, Guthrie realized he knew much about Eisenhower as a general, but not as a president, so he chose this in-depth biography to learn more. He is also in the midst of “Witness to Hope: The Biography of Pope John Paul II” by George Weigel.
“Most of my reading is on airplanes. I love the announcement to turn off cellphones,” said Guthrie, who often reads more than one book at a time, alternating between fiction and nonfiction.
