Eric Fingerhut: Voinovich supported 3 tax cuts and a $413 billion deficit

VOINOVICH: “I went to Washington to reduce the deficit and balance the budget. At the same time, my colleagues were spending money like drunken sailors.”

FINGERHUT: “This is truly a Voinovich deficit,” Fingerhut shot back, referring to the record $413 billion federal shortfall for fiscal year 2004. He blamed Voinovich for the size of deficit because he supported three major tax cuts. “No matter how many times Sen. Voinovich calls himself a deficit hawk, it doesn’t make it true,” Fingerhut said.
