Budget Provides More Jobs, More Growth, More Relief

WASHINGTON, DC – House Republican Conference Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) released the following statement after the House Budget Committee released the “Path to Prosperity,” the Fiscal Year 2015 House Republican Budget:

“At a time when Americans face a sluggish economy and stagnant job growth, the ‘Path to Prosperity’ provides the long-term economic framework to relieve both.  Right now, too many people feel the effects of Washington’s out-of-control spending.  They feel it in their pocketbooks, at the doctor’s office, and in their family budgets.  And while they make cuts, the federal government continues to spend.  The House Republican budget not only reforms the tax code and reduces spending by over $5 trillion; it relieves hardworking Americans from the increasingly burdensome costs of Obamacare.  Our budget will make people’s lives better – with lower taxes, more jobs, and a stronger, healthier economy.  I applaud Chairman Ryan for his unwavering commitment to a balanced budget that empowers people all across this country. It’s time for Washington to tighten its budget so the American people don’t have to tighten theirs. “
