For the Second Straight Year, The House Has Led With Bold Ideas and a Clear Vision
Today I voted for final passage of H. Con. Res 112 the House’s 2013 Budget, the Path to Prosperity.
We were sent to Washington to get our nation’s fiscal house in order, and for the second straight year, the House has led with bold ideas and a fresh vision for how America can get out from under massive debt and ever-increasing spending. I believe that preserving and protecting Medicare for our seniors, making a fairer, flatter tax code and reducing the massive expansion of Government should be our top priorities, and I’m glad to see our Budget present real specifics on how we achieve those goals. With this Budget, we’re honest. We stop making promises to the American people we know we can’t keep - and we start putting our budget on a path to balance through pro-growth policies that get Government out of the way of the private sector so we can create jobs.
