U.S. Congressman Pete Sessions (R-TX), Chairman of the House Rules Committee, today released the following statement regarding House passage of the fiscal year 2014 House budget resolution:
"Our nation has reached a crossroads with two clear paths. We can either continue the President's tax-and-spend policies that burden our economy with crushing debt and stagnant growth, or we can chart a new course towards prosperity. House Republicans have once again produced a plan that demonstrates a bold vision for restoring our nation's economic vitality through a budget that balances in ten years and offers pro-growth policies to create opportunities.
"The American people deserve leaders that make the tough choices necessary to get our fiscal house in order. House Republicans have stepped up to this challenge by bringing forth a responsible budget proposal that will ensure a vibrant economy, a growing workforce, and sustainable entitlement programs. I am pleased that the House has approved "The Path to Prosperity' budget today, and urge my colleagues in the Senate to join us in putting our nation on a new path."
