Today, U.S. Congressman Roger Williams (TX-25), a member of the House Budget Committee, released the following statement after the unveiling of the House Republican budget:
"Everyone in America has to balance their own budget -- not every 10 years, but every year. This plan gets us to a balanced budget within 10 years. It's smart, it's responsible, and it's the right way to get our economy back on track. The path to prosperity requires us to make tough decisions, but by applying the same principles that families and businesses use every day, we can balance the budget, cut wasteful spending, and fix our broken tax code, all without increasing taxes. I look forward to continuing the work of the American people alongside Chairman Ryan and my fellow House Budget Committee Members as we work towards righting our country's fiscal ship."
