News release from Congressman Marlin Stutzman (IN-3rd, R):
Stutzman: “It’s Hard for President Obama to Find a Solution When He Doesn’t Understand the Problem”
Washington, D.C. – U.S. Congressman Marlin Stutzman spoke on the House floor today about the House Republican budget and President Obama’s insistence that the country does not face a debt crisis.
“It’s hard for President Obama to find a solution when he doesn’t understand the problem.
“This week, he told ABC News that he doesn’t believe that our country faces a debt crisis. Yesterday, Senate Democrats outlined a budget that never balances but sinks us further and further into debt year after year.
“The American people understand that nearly $17 trillion dollars of debt is no way to run a county. Hoosiers know that every penny Washington borrows today will be taken from taxpayer pockets tomorrow. Folks back home know this and so do House Republicans.
“That’s why I’m proud to support the budget my friend and colleague Chairman Ryan introduced this week. Mr. Speaker, this budget actually balances in ten years. Something our Democrat colleagues’ budget in the Senate never does. It never balances.
“Mr. Speaker, our budget encourages economic growth and promotes opportunity for all Americans. By simplifying the tax code, scaling back government overreach and strengthening the promises made to seniors, our budget puts this country on a responsible, balanced path.”
