Washington, DC – Today, Ways and Means Committee Chairman Dave Camp (R-MI) issued the following statement after the House passed the House Republican Budget Resolution.
“The House Republican Budget Resolution is a clear demonstration that Republicans will reform Washington to strengthen our economy, create jobs and get our fiscal house in order. Congress owes it to the American people to cut out of control Washington spending, balance the budget, and, most importantly, help employers create jobs. This budget makes the bold choices necessary to get this country back on course and preserve the critical safety net programs on which seniors and the disabled rely.
“This budget could not be more different than the President’s, which taxes more and borrows more so that Washington can spend more – all of which will hurt job creation. The tax plan included in the budget, as provided by the Ways and Means Committee, creates an environment for greater innovation, investment and job creation. The Ways and Means Committee will continue to work towards comprehensive reform that not only makes our code flatter, fairer and simpler, but also provides employers and families with the certainty they need to plan for the future.”
