Congresswoman Jackie Walorski, a member of the House Budget Committee, released the following statement regarding the House Republicans FY2014 budget plan called, The Path to Prosperity: A Responsible, Balanced Budget:
"I applaud the hard work of Chairman Paul Ryan and my Republican colleagues to present the American people with a responsible, commonsense budget that will balance over the next 10 years. At home in Indiana, Hoosier families sit around their kitchen tables and make tough decisions to keep a budget; it is time for Washington to do the same. With record deficits and runaway spending, I am confident this plan will start to erase our $16.6 trillion national debt and spur economic growth to create jobs. I encourage the President and Senate Democrats to come to the table and join us in our mission to balance the budget--proving this Congress will not tolerate business as usual in our nation's capital."
