He doesn't like President Obama's budget and he's said he's disappointed that Democrats, who control the Senate, haven't put forth any alternatives so now Sen. Pat Toomey, R-Pa., is ready to put his own spending plan on the table.
The only trouble with that is that Budget Committee Chairman Kent Conrad has so far prohibited the introduction of alternative budgets. Mr. Toomey will try anyway.
The senator plans to explain his plan tomorrow during a briefing with Washington reporters.
"The American people ... want a serious and substantive budget that puts our country on a path to balance. Is that too much to ask?" Mr. Toomey said in a statement released late this evening.
