Roe Statement on the House Republican Budget
WASHINGTON D.C. – Today, U.S. Congressman Phil Roe, M.D. (TN-01) made the following statement on passage of the House Republican Budget:
“The unsustainable amount of government debt is so high that it is straining economic growth. Therefore, it is important that Congress pass a budget that will restore economic growth, create jobs and enact enforceable and meaningful cuts, in order to preserve our future.
“Americans deserve better than empty promises from a broken government, and ‘The Path to Prosperity’ budget offers a tangible way forward. This budget cuts spending in a meaningful way, lowers tax rates while simplifying the tax code, puts patients back at the center of health care decision-making, and spurs energy production at a time of near-record gas prices.
“Passage of this legislation will help restore jobs and put our country back on the path of prosperity.”
