Rokita Optimistic Moving the Budget Forward

Washington, D.C.--Congressman Todd Rokita, Vice Chairman of the budget committee voices optimism on the budget, but demands continued dedication.

“The future of our nation demands that my colleagues and I create a balanced budget and that means acting now,” said Rokita. “Under President Obama, our families suffered and many felt like the American dream was gone. By creating a balanced budget, we can revive the American dream by stopping our country’s out of control spending and dangerous borrowing from China. This budget also addresses our nation’s growing fiscal crisis: mandatory spending. By cutting $203 billion over ten years, our country will focus limited resources on those most vulnerable while encouraging a culture of self-reliance instead of government reliance.”

The Budget Committee is currently evaluating the proposed budget. Once it passes committee, it will move onto the House floor. More information about the budget is available here: Building a Better America!
