Republican Budget Plan

Floor Speech

Location: Washington, DC

Mr. CROWLEY. Good day, Mr. Speaker. Good day, my colleagues--or as my Republican colleagues would say, bonjour.

Today, we're considering the Republican budget, which is a plan modeled after European-style austerity measures. In plain English, it is bad.

The non-partisan Congressional Budget Office makes clear this budget will slow economic growth and kill over 2.5 million American jobs. It requires further sacrifices from our veterans, our seniors, students, small businesses, and hardworking middle class families. It ends Medicare as we know it. And it has no vision for how we're going to create jobs. It doesn't even include the phrase ``job creation.''

The American people rejected this budget in November 2012. The Congress should reject it today. It's time to say au revoir--good-bye--to this Republican budget and move forward with a plan focused on jobs and creating a better future for this country.
