WASHINGTON, DC – House Republican Conference Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) released the following statement today after the House passed H.Con.Res. 96, Establishing the budget for the United States Government for fiscal year 2015 and setting forth appropriate budgetary levels for fiscal years 2016 through 2024.
“It is time to get America back to work, and by passing a responsible budget, House Republicans are working to boost wages and create jobs for everyone in this country. American families need relief, and our budget will put more money into their pockets and pave the way for an economy in which they can thrive. By cutting wasteful spending, this budget – one that balances in ten years – stops spending money we don’t have. Families all across the country are forced to abide by their budgets, balance their checkbooks, and live within their means. It’s time for Washington to do the same thing.”
