McMorris Rodgers Applauds Passage of House Budget

Washington, D.C. – Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA), Vice Chair of the House Republican Conference, released the following statement today after the U.S. House passed the historic “Path to Prosperity” budget for Fiscal Year 2013:

“I am proud to join my colleagues in passing a bold, fiscally-responsible budget that will create jobs, cut spending and reduce the deficit, while also protecting our seniors and the vulnerable.”

The “Path to Prosperity,” also known as the “Ryan Plan,” will reduce tax rates, cut projected spending by $5 trillion, and cut projected deficits by $4 trillion over the next 10 years.

“By cutting taxes and putting us on a path to fiscal sanity, the Ryan Plan will give small business owners the confidence they need to grow and create jobs again. The threat of a major debt crisis in the next few years is hurting our recovery today, and the best way to avoid this crisis – and bolster our economy – is to cut spending, not by raising taxes.  Washington has a spending problem; not a revenue problem.  And the Ryan Plan gets at the heart of our spending problem, while also saving Medicare and preserving the safety net.  I strongly believe the Senate should pass it.”

The Senate hasn’t passed a budget in more than 1,000 days.
