Congressman Ander Crenshaw today (4/15) voted for the Fiscal Year 2012 Budget Resolution (H. Con. Res. 34) -- sound budget policy that puts the nation on a path to prosperity.
The legislation, authored by House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan (R-WI), passed the House by a vote of 235 to 193 and now moves to the Senate for consideration.
"Congress moves the budget ball closer the goal of a brighter economic future for current and future generations with passage of this budget plan," said Crenshaw, Chairman of the Legislative Branch Appropriations Subcommittee. "Americans understand you can't spend, tax, or borrow your way to a strong economy and job creation."
"That's why I strongly supported the measure. We've moved from cutting billions of dollars to cutting trillions and must keep the momentum going," Crenshaw continued. "This plan aims to cut $6.2 trillion in spending, eliminate more wasteful programs, reduce the deficit by $4.4 trillion, keep taxes low, grow the economy, and create jobs. Americans deserve the economic peace of mind that comes with this sound and fiscally responsible legislation."
