Today, U.S. Congressman Paul A. Gosar, D.D.S (AZ-04) voted for "The Path to Prosperity," House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan's Fiscal 2014 budget (H. Con. Res. 25). Yesterday, Rep. Gosar voted in favor of the Republican Study Committee's (RSC) "Back to Basics" Fiscal Year 2014 alternative budget as well. After passage of "The Path to Prosperity," Rep. Gosar issued the following statement:
"Though neither plan is perfect, 'The Path to Prosperity' and the RSC alternative budget are better for the American people than the tax and spend proposals offered by President Obama, Senate Democrats and the Progressive Caucus."
Rep. Gosar continued, "Our country is addicted to spending and has a serious debt problem. We need a plan to achieve a pro-growth and prosperous economy, reviving opportunity for those in search of the American dream. Both "The Path to Prosperity' and the RSC alternative budget would revive that opportunity by cutting federal spending, focusing on the primary drivers of our debt and implementing pro-growth reforms."
