WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congresswoman Jackie Walorski (IN-02) released the following statement after the House Budget Resolution for Fiscal Year 2015 was passed by the House Budget Committee today:
“As a member of the House Budget Committee, I want to thank my colleagues for their hard work in creating a budget that will balance in 10 years, spur economic growth, and promote job creation. Hoosiers understand that a budget that balances creates jobs.
“This budget protects seniors and low-income Americans by ensuring that Medicare and safety net programs like the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) will be viable in the future, protecting these programs for the Americans who depend upon them.
“Washington cannot continue to spend money America doesn’t have,” said Walorski. “With over $17 trillion in national debt, this budget is a commonsense plan that curbs outrageous spending, promotes economic growth, creates jobs for Hoosiers, increases funding for our veterans, and supports a strong national defense.”
