Path to Prosperity Budget

Floor Speech

Location: Washington, DC

Mr. SHIMKUS. Mr. Speaker, this week, the House will consider the Path to Prosperity budget, reaffirming once again that House Republicans are the only ones in Washington offering serious solutions to government spending-driven debt crisis.

Americans at home must prepare a balanced budget for themselves and their families. Our plan would bring the same common sense to Washington and balance our budget in 10 years.

Our budget is not balanced by raising taxes on hardworking Americans but by responsibly reducing spending on government waste and reforming mandatory spending to ensure that programs Americans rely on remain strong for decades to come. Our budget saves taxpayers $4.6 trillion over 10 years.

The Senate Democrat budget calls for $1.5 trillion in new taxes and $7.3 trillion in new debt.

Americans deserve better. That is why House Republicans have proposed a Path to Prosperity budget--to get our economy back on track and create more jobs and opportunity for all Americans.
