Congressman Michael McCaul (R-TX 10) released the following statement on Rep. Paul Ryan's budget proposal, released today:
"Rep. Paul Ryan's budget is bold and responsible. For too long Washington, D.C. has spent freely without any concern for the future generations who will inevitably have to pick up the tab. This plan balances the budget within 10 years without raising taxes and it reforms entitlements in order to sustain them. The President says he wants to work with Congress to address our direfinances and I hope he will. It is time for both chambers of Congress and the President to meaningfully tackle our nearly $17 trillion debt. Only in Washington does balancing a budget in a decade get criticized for trying to do too much, too fast. The families and small businesses throughout my district live on a budget and they expect the stewards of their hard-earned tax dollars to do the same."
