Congressman Jo Bonner, R-Alabama, voted for the House Republican budget offered by Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan, R-WI.

"For the second year in a row the House has shown that it can lead the debate to cut federal spending. The House Republican budget rejects the president's premise that new taxes and bigger deficits are unavoidable.

"House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan's 'Path to Prosperity' budget cuts new spending by $5 trillion and reduces the budget deficit by more than $3 trillion over ten years compared to President Obama's budget.

"Furthermore, the House-passed budget repeals the president's unpopular and unconstitutional health care law and reforms the tax code to make it simple, fair and competitive. In contrast, the Senate hasn't passed a budget in nearly three years."

The House Republican Budget (H. Con. Res. 112) passed the House by a vote of 228 to 191 on March 29, 2012. On March 28, the House rejected President Obama's budget by a 414 to 0 vote.
