Today, Congressman Kenny Marchant (TX-24), member of the Ways and Means Committee, issued the following statement upon passage of the House Republican budget:
"Today I voted in support of the House Republican plan to balance our budget over the next ten years. This budget plan will fully repeal Obamacare, the President's misguided health care law that is raising premiums on American families and making it harder for small businesses and manufacturers to hire.
"This budget will also pave the way for comprehensive tax reform that will help grow our economy. Furthermore, this budget achieves balance without raising taxes on the American people; this is in stark contrast to Democrat proposals that never achieve balance, despite raising taxes by over $1 trillion.
"The American people deserve a federal government that lives within its means, and today's House vote has moved us closer to that goal."
Yesterday Congressman Marchant also voted for an alternative budget put forward by the Republican Study Committee that would have balanced the budget in four years.
