Budget Agreement is a Step in the Right Direction

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (WA-05), Chair of the House Republican Conference, issued the following statement about the agreement reached between House and Senate Budget Committee Chairmen Paul Ryan (R-WI) and Patty Murray (D-WA):

“Today’s budget agreement between Chairmen Paul Ryan and Patty Murray is a step in the right direction on the path toward economic security for hardworking Americans. While this deal includes modest budgetary reforms, it is another positive sign that deficit reduction can be achieved by making real spending cuts and reforms without raising taxes. I will continue to fight for fiscal responsibility so that people in Eastern Washington can have greater financial certainty and economic security for themselves, their families, and their futures.”
