One Solution and Three Simple Steps

Floor Speech

Location: Washington, DC


Mr. FLEMING. Madam Speaker, I have three simple words for President Obama and congressional Democrats: cut, cap, and balance. Last week when our Campaigner in Chief held his news conference, he asked for a plan.

Well, Mr. President, cut, cap and balance is our plan. It's a plan that cuts Federal spending immediately, puts in place enforceable spending caps, and demands a balanced budget amendment to the Constitution. This plan cuts total spending by $111 billion in 2012 and around $5.8 trillion over the next 10 years, while not increasing taxes one single penny. We have too much debt because we spend too much, not because we haven't taxed you enough.

Mr. President, you asked for a plan and here it is. It's your turn to get serious and work with us to solve this problem--not against us. Stop demagoging this issue with cheap scare tactics and politics because the American people are tired of it and deserve much better.
