Press Release

Washington - Republican Study Committee Chairman Mark Walker released the following statement after the Balanced Budget Amendment failed to pass on the House Floor:

“Today’s vote shows that Democrats’ newfound rhetoric of caring about our debt is just empty words based in political opportunism. While it certainly is a disappointment that a Balanced Budget Amendment was blocked by Democrats, this cannot be the the end of our efforts to get America back on the right fiscal track. With the recent $1.3 trillion budget-busting omnibus, we must renew our efforts to tackle the spending crisis by repealing and replacing Obamacare, reforming our welfare programs and rescinding unneeded appropriations.”
