U.S. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell released the following statement today regarding the introduction of the House budget resolution, which would balance the federal budget in 10 years:
"I commend Chairman Ryan for releasing a serious and detailed budget blueprint for getting our nation's fiscal house in order. His budget recognizes the need to grow the economy, not the government. With our country's debt at crisis levels, Congressman Ryan's plan would balance the budget in 10 years, which will foster a healthier economy and help create jobs. By contrast, the budget that Senate Democrats will release this week won't balance -- ever. We all know that families must balance their budgets, and Washington should, too. Today's House Republican budget puts our nation firmly on a path to get our spending and debt in order so we can regain control of our economic future."
