"The American people deserve a fact-based budget conversation in order to transform spending habits in Washington and ultimately create jobs here in Florida. For too long, credibility and facts have been absent from the rhetoric in Washington; it is high time to insert factual specifics into the spending debate.
"While tough choices are necessary to cut spending in Washington to foster innovation and prosperity for Florida's future generations, I am confident Americans are ready to have that serious conversation. A blueprint like Congressman Paul Ryan's that keeps taxes low to foster job growth, saves Medicare, and reduces spending for future generations consists of principled proposals that I support.
"Medicare does not have a future under the status quo or under the limp proposals put forward by the Administration and business-as-usual Washington liberals. Paul Ryan's plan saves Medicare for future generations while ensuring that current recipients will not see a single change to their current benefit or coverage,"said Congressman Webster.
