Colbert Busch Breaks With Obama On Budget Plan

Democratic 1st District congressional candidate Elizabeth Colbert Busch says she disagrees with the $3.7 trillion federal budget President Barack Obama is sending to Congress.

Colbert Busch says the budget doesn't balance and doesn't cut enough spending. She says cutting spending and lowering taxes are key to small businesses creating jobs. She says the budget should focus on wasteful spending, but says she objects to it cutting benefits for seniors.

Colbert Busch's Republican opponent, former Gov. Mark Sanford, says that he's always been fighting for lower taxes and balanced budgets and rejects the Obama proposal out of hand.

But Sanford says he's fascinated that Colbert Busch is now talking about balanced budgets after supporting the federal stimulus and the national health care act.
