Rep. Andy Harris released the following statement on the passage of the House budget:
"Today, House Republicans passed a budget that takes the first step in restoring the American dream by placing America on a path to prosperity and opportunity. The House budget will put America on a sustainable trajectory to end trillion-dollar deficits and help secure the retirement and health care programs, like Medicare, for our nation's future. Last night, President Obama's budget was unanimously rejected 414-0. It's clear that even House Democrats agree that the President's plan only leads us on a path to bankruptcy by adding another $11 trillion in additional debt and by imposing $1.9 trillion in new taxes on hard-working families. I hope that the Senate will finally take action on a budget after not passing one in over 1,000 days. It's time for the Senate and the President to work with the House to place America on a path to fiscal stability."
