Walorski, Stutzman statements on budget agreement

Posted:

The following are statements regarding passage of the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2013:

Rep. Jackie Walorski

 

"Hoosiers sit around their kitchen tables and make tough choices to keep a budget, and they expect Washington to do the same.  Today, the House took a step in the right direction by passing a budget plan with bipartisan support.  This deal is not perfect, but it serves as a building block for deficit reduction and long term reforms—without raising taxes. 
 
"Approval of this plan will provide much-needed certainty for the business community and improve economic outlook.  Without a doubt, there is still much work to be done to balance the budget, reduce government spending, and address tax reform.  Moving forward, I will continue reaching across the aisle to get our fiscal house in order to ensure a brighter future for the next generation.
 
"In a divided government, working together is a necessity, not an option.  I urge my colleagues in the Senate to pass this deal to prove that Congress can work together for the sake of the American people."

 

Rep. Marlin Stutzman

"While this bipartisan agreement isn't perfect, it stops President Obama's dangerous habit of governing from one budget crisis to the next. Each of the President's manufactured crises brought new calls for more taxes and higher spending and that's exactly what I'm working to prevent. This is by no means a permanent solution but it does give Congress an opportunity to cut our debt, end ObamaCare's pain, and lower taxes for families and businesses."
