Goodlatte Statement on House Budget Plan

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

"Balancing the budget is the responsibility of America's lawmakers. The House GOP budget plan is a step in the right direction and tackles our spending problem head-on. It eliminates funding for Obamacare, balances the budget in 10 years, and preserves Medicare and Social Security for today's seniors as well as future generations. The House plan makes it clear that the government cannot continue to pile this burden of debt on the backs of our children and grandchildren. Reducing spending to balance our budget is critical to growing our economy and creating American jobs. As a longtime proponent of a balanced budget and sponsor of the Balanced Budget Amendment, I support this responsible plan to put America back on the path to balance and prosperity. I urge the president and Senate Democrats to join us in this common sense goal."
