McMorris Rodgers Votes for Fiscally Responsible Balanced Budget
(Washington, D.C.) Just like families and small businesses across Eastern Washington are prioritizing and making tough spending decisions in this economy, Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers believes Congress and the federal government must do the same.
That is why today, McMorris Rodgers voted for a budget that proposes to balance the federal budget. Since coming to Congress, McMorris Rodgers has supported this goal, and is a cosponsor of a Constitutional amendment that does just that.
“Families, small businesses and even the State of Washington must balance their budgets. It’s difficult and it forces some hard choices,” McMorris Rodgers said. “It’s time for the federal government to do the same. We can’t grow jobs and improve the economy by carrying this huge amount of debt.
“Like most moms in this country, I look at my two year old son Cole and wonder what kind of world he will have, what will his dreams be, and will he have the same freedoms and opportunities that we enjoy today. By controlling spending, limiting our debt and strengthening small businesses, we can ensure the next generation has the same opportunities and freedoms we enjoy.”
