Congresswoman Susan W. Brooks (R-IN) offered the following statement on The Path to Prosperity: A Responsible, Balanced Budget released today by Chairman Paul Ryan (R-WI) and Republicans on the House Budget Committee:
"House Republicans have put forward a common-sense plan that balances our budget and provides a true roadmap for making government smaller, smarter and better. We know hard working Americans expect Washington D.C. to live within its means and reduce barriers to economic growth. Today's announcement reflects our commitment to those same priorities.
Senate Democrats should recognize that another tax increase is not a sound strategy or a worthy blue-print for success. Americans deserve a real plan, a real path to prosperity, and that's what they received from House Republicans today."
