Greg Walden votes for plan to balance the budget, create American jobs
March 21, 2013
"The Republican budget actually balances in ten years, and that's important because that's how we are going to create significant new jobs in America for the middle class. The Democrats' budget alternatives never balance. Yet we know their plans raise upwards of a trillion dollars in higher taxes and still never balance the federal budget. There is nothing balanced about their alternatives. We should not go down the road of more debt and deficits for the next generation. It is not fair to the kids. We need to protect and preserve our safety net programs. The Republican budget does that. And we need to grow jobs in middle class America. Our plan does that as well."
