WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Congressman Pete Sessions (R-TX), Chairman of the House Rules Committee, today released the following statement regarding the unveiling of the fiscal year 2014 House budget resolution by Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan:
“Chairman Ryan’s bold budget blueprint funds our nation’s priorities, promotes economic growth and achieves balance within ten years – a plan that the American people demand and deserve. ‘The Path to Prosperity’ budget proposal cuts wasteful government spending, reforms our broken tax code, tackles the drivers of the national debt, and strengthens health and retirement security for our seniors and future retirees.
“House Republicans recognize that we can’t tax and spend our way to prosperity. The only way to create new opportunities for the American people and get our economy growing again is to do the difficult but necessary work to rein in our debt, provide certainty in the marketplace and implement pro-growth tax reforms. We urge the President and Senate Democrats to join us in this effort. I stand ready to work with my colleagues on moving this responsible budget proposal forward to ensure a sound fiscal future for generations to come.”
