Rep. Quayle To Support Budget Control Act

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

Congressman Ben Quayle (R-AZ) released the following statement in support of the Budget Control Act of 2011:

"I came to Washington with two main goals in mind: getting the economy going again and reducing the size and scope of government. I will vote for the Budget Control Act because I am committed to these goals. While it's not perfect, the Budget Control Act is an important first step that puts in place structural spending reforms and cuts, requires passage of a balanced budget amendment, stands firm against tax increases and ensures that America pays its bills.

"Importantly, the Budget Control Act achieves our long-standing demand that spending reductions be greater than any debt ceiling increase. And unlike Senator Harry Reid's plan, the reductions and caps are real.

"While we wait for this debate to progress, it's important to remember how much the debate in Washington has shifted over the past few months. Until recently, the Obama Administration and Congressional Democrats insisted on a clean debt ceiling increase devoid of any spending reductions. By standing firm, Republicans have forced Congressional Democrats and the White House to abandon that reckless demand. These efforts will ensure the debate over restoring fiscal sanity remains at the forefront."
