Congressman Gus M. Bilirakis today praised the passage of The Path to Prosperity: A Responsible, Balanced Budget, saying:
"Today's passage of the balanced budget rights our country's economic ship, putting us back on a responsible, stable course that ensures all Americans can continue to pursue their own unique vision of the American Dream. It encourages job creation and key investments in our nation's economy, takes necessary steps to preserve and protect Medicare for current and future generations, and simplifies the tax code to allow middle-class families and American businesses to thrive. We can't continue to spend money we don't have; money we haven't had for a very long time. Today's vote ensures our children and grandchildren will be able to enjoy the same America we are proud to call home."
