Hill: House’s Balanced Budget ‘Addresses Our Long-Term Challenges in Order to Strengthen America’

Washington, D.C. - Congressman French Hill (AR-2) released the following statement today after the House passed H. Con. Res. 27, to establish a budget for the U.S. Government for fiscal year 2016, by a vote of 228-199:“Last month, President Obama released a tone-deaf budget that increases taxes and spending without balancing the budget and allows Social Security and Medicare to go bankrupt.

“The House budget replaces the President’s proposal with one that balances, eliminates wasteful government spending, repeals Obamacare, preserves Social Security and Medicare for current beneficiaries and future generations, and commits to providing a strong national defense for America.

“It would also restore the principle of federalism—the foundation of our Constitution — by empowering states, local communities, and the real drivers of opportunity and prosperity: the American people. I am proud to have voted for a budget that addresses our long-term challenges in order to strengthen America for future generations.”
