State of New York Archives: on Budget & Economy


Kirsten Gillibrand: Tighten our belts but carefully, not a "slash-only approach"

Gillibrand hit Long on her pledge to not raise taxes to balance the federal budget. "We can tighten our belts. We can cut spending," Gillibrand said, "but we have to do it precisely and carefully. We cannot have a slash-only approach, like my opponent has."

Long campaigned on fiscal discipline and other conservative positions.
