"U.S. Senator George V. Voinovich (R-OH), the Senate’s top “debt hawk,” voted last night against passage of S. Con. Res. 13 — the Fiscal Year 2010 Budget Resolution. … 'I want Americans to know the facts. This budget doubles the already $9.85 trillion debt in five years and triples it in 10 years, continuing huge deficits beyond this administration.'"

The same day, Voinovich voted for an estate tax cut benefitting those worth more than $7 million. The cut will cost the government $250 billion. — Frank Lewis
