Mr. GIBBS. Mr. Speaker, currently we are experiencing one of the worst economic recoveries in the history of our Nation. It's a stagnant economy, and this should not be the new normal. Our budget is a blueprint for economic growth and job creation.
I can't stress the differences between our budget and the Senate Democrat budget. Their budget raises taxes by over $1 trillion and never balances. This is totally irresponsible.
We cannot continue to borrow nearly $4 billion every day. Current policies and the Senate Democrats' plan is suffocating our economy and job growth.
Our budget brings us to a balanced budget using tax dollars in a fiscally responsible manner, commonsense regulatory tax reforms, and an energy policy that results in economic growth and job creation.
