Mrs. WALORSKI. Today, hardworking Hoosier families sit around their kitchen tables and make tough decisions to keep a balanced budget. The Federal Government should do the same thing.
In the State of Indiana, we were able to balance our budget and get our fiscal house in order. We created jobs and we kept taxes low using a commonsense, step-by-step approach.
It's time for this Congress to pass a responsible budget that reins in spending and promotes economic growth and job creation. House Republicans have introduced a budget that balances in 10 years while protecting the most vulnerable among us. Proposals by the Senate Democrats never balance and will jeopardize our seniors and our poor by spending our country into bankruptcy.
We cannot afford to wait. I urge my colleagues to support the House Republican budget resolution.
