WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Rep. Phil Roe, M.D. (R-TN) voted in support of both the Republican Study Committee and House Budget Committee budget proposals. Roe released the following statement:

“For far too long, politicians in Washington on both sides of the aisle have put the tough choices off to the next budget year or the next Congress, really just leaving them for the next generation,” said Roe. “That stops now. Unlike President Obama, House Republicans are committed to developing policies that will get our country’s fiscal house in order, and these budget blueprints are just one of many steps we’re taking. Both of these proposals put us on a path to balancing our budget, and I strongly support both the Republican Study Committee and the House Budget Committee’s budget proposals.”  

Background:

The Republican Study Committee’s budget would cut spending by $7.1 trillion and bring the federal budget into balance in six years. For more information on this proposal, click here.

The House Budget Committee’s budget would cut spending by $5.5 trillion and bring the federal budget into balance in less than ten years. It preserves Medicare for future generations, repeals ObamaCare, and provides adequate resources to maintain a strong military and national defense. For more information on this proposal, click here
