WASHINGTON – Today, the Republican Study Committee released its annual budget, which: includes more than 300 individual policy proposals and spending cuts; prioritizes the American people instead of Washington insiders and bureaucrats; reduces federal barriers that thwart innovation and free market forces; expands individual choice by removing government encroachment; and prepares generations to come for a prosperous future by reducing the size and scope of our massive federal government.
RSC CHAIRMAN MIKE JOHNSON (R-LA.) RELEASED THE FOLLOWING STATEMENT:
“Over the years, Nancy Pelosi has repeatedly said, ‘Show me your budget, show me your values.’ Yet, this year, House Democrats have refused to present a budget and instead have offered multiple proposals to increase spending exponentially. By contrast, the Republican Study Committee is fulfilling the responsibility of Congress and presenting the only budget proposal in the House.
“Our budget will preserve American freedom, reduce spending and balance in just six years. So, we say to Speaker Pelosi and House Democrats, this is our budget, and these are our values. Where are yours?”
RSC BUDGET & SPENDING TASK FORCE CHAIRMAN JIM BANKS (R-IND.) RELEASED THE FOLLOWING STATEMENT:
“Today, the RSC is stepping up to the plate to unveil the fiscally conservative budget that Americans have been demanding. The American economy is strong and growing, providing us with an historic opportunity to address our deficit spending and debt. The RSC budget balances by 2025, cuts trillions in wasteful spending and starts the overdue task of beginning to pay down our over $22 trillion national debt.
“While Democrats have embraced policies like the Green New Deal and ‘Medicare for All,’ which would exponentially grow our debt levels, the RSC budget is the only serious effort in Congress to balance our budget.”
