Congressman Johnson backs a responsible plan to balance the budget
Mar 12 -
Today Congressman Sam Johnson (R-TX) released the following statement in support of the House GOP Fiscal Year 2014 budget blueprint, titled, “The Path to Prosperity: A Responsible, Balanced Budget.” This plan seeks to balance the budget by ending Washington’s out-of-control, wasteful spending, repealing Obamacare, reforming our broken tax code, providing for a strong defense and ensuring the future of Medicare and Social Security.
“Budgeting isn’t easy, but with over $16 trillion in debt, it is necessary to make the tough choices now to ensure a bright future for our children and grandchildren. A plan that balances the budget without asking hardworking Americans to pay more in taxes is the right and responsible approach.
“American families know they can’t spend money they do not have, and Washington must learn to do the same. It is time for Washington to give the American people what they want, need and deserve: a responsible, balanced budget.”
