Carter Praises House Budget Proposal
WASHINGTON, D.C. - Congressman Earl L. “Buddy” Carter (GA-01) released the following statement in response to the House Budget Committee’s introduction of its Fiscal Year 2016 budget proposal, A Balanced Budget for a Stronger America today.
“The House Republican Budget released by the House Budget Committee today provides real solutions and is a plan to grow our economy, protect Georgia’s families and create a better America for our children and grandchildren. A Balanced Budget for a Stronger America balances the budget in less than ten years, calls for a fairer and simpler tax code, eliminates wasteful programs, provides for a strong national defense and supports the brave men and women who risk their lives for it, strengthens vital programs like Medicare and repeals Obamacare in full.
“As a father, husband and small business owner for more than thirty years, I know firsthand the necessity of balancing a budget just like American families do across the country every day. Hardworking taxpayers deserve a budget that enacts true reforms and this budget is the right path to put an end to Washington’s out of control fiscal situation.”
