Speaker Boehner on Introduction of the Require a PLAN Act

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) issued the following statement after Rep. Tom Price (R-GA) introduced the Require a PLAN Act, which requires President Obama to submit to Congress a balanced budget:

"So long as Washington isn't balancing its checkbook, it's going to be harder for families and small business owners to balance theirs. Getting Senate Democrats to finally agree to do a budget was a good start, but we need President Obama to do his job as well. With this measure, we are giving the president a chance to kick his habit of submitting budgets that spend, tax, and borrow too much. That approach clearly isn't working. By requiring the president to show how he would balance the budget, all we're doing is holding him to the same standard any family tries to meet. Given that the president's budget will be late, it may as well be right."
