Representative Jim Sensenbrenner (R-WI) made the following remarks after voting in support of House Republicans' Fiscal Year 2014 Budget Resolution, which was passed by the House of Representatives today. 

“Today, by voting in favor of a responsible budget, House Republicans have again shown our eagerness to change course and put America’s economy back on track. Chairman Ryan and the members of the House Budget Committee have constructed a blueprint to balance the budget in 10 years, putting an end to annual trillion dollar deficits while protecting programs Americans depend on and addressing our broken tax code. 

“Our national debt is over $16.4 trillion and growing. It is not only an economic issue, but a moral one that endangers our national security and threatens the prosperity of future generations.  The bottom line is Washington cannot continue to spend more money than it brings in. And the Republican budget is a step in the right direction.”
