WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congresswoman Jackie Walorski, a member of the House Budget Committee, released the following statement regarding the House Republicans FY2014 budget plan called, The Path to Prosperity: A Responsible, Balanced Budget:
“I applaud the hard work of Chairman Paul Ryan and my Republican colleagues to present the American people with a responsible, commonsense budget that will balance over the next 10 years. At home in Indiana, Hoosier families sit around their kitchen tables and make tough decisions to keep a budget; it is time for Washington to do the same. With record deficits and runaway spending, I am confident this plan will start to erase our $16.6 trillion national debt and spur economic growth to create jobs. I encourage the President and Senate Democrats to come to the table and join us in our mission to balance the budget—proving this Congress will not tolerate business as usual in our nation’s capital.”
