Congressman Fitzpatrick today issued the following statement on the House Republican budget proposal:
"I was sent to Washington to get government spending under control, instill confidence in private sector job creators and spark economic recovery. The spending status quo is no longer acceptable and the budget proposed by the President does nothing to alter this unsustainable course.
"The House Republican proposal marks an important step in what will be a serious, and at times difficult, conversation about America's finances and the legacy this generation passes to the next. The Republican budget cuts $6.2 trillion over the next decade and puts us on a path to a balanced budget, important steps towards America's long-term fiscal stability.
"I hope that my constituents will take time to familiarize themselves with this proposal and be active participants in this national discussion."
