House Republicans Have Delivered Fiscal Responsibility

Speaker McCarthy and House Republicans will restore fiscal sanity and hold Washington accountable with the Fiscal Responsibility Act. This legislation, which was only possible because House Republicans acted responsibly to pass a plan and force President Biden to the negotiating table, is being reported as a “Republican victory” consisting of “historic reductions in spending” which would rein in government overreach, limit inflationary spending, and lift Americans out of poverty. 
For months, President Biden recklessly demanded that he get a clean debt ceiling increase, and insisted on business as usual as to how Washington spends taxpayer dollars. 
Despite initially refusing to negotiate, Biden has ultimately caved to House Republicans as a result of a combined effort to rein in reckless spending and put our country on a better trajectory.
