Club for Growth Statement On The Ryan BudgetLink to Article: http://www.clubforgrowth.org/perm/pr/?postID=1047
Washington, DC – The Club for Growth issued the following statement today on Congressman Paul Ryan’s budget proposal:
“Despite containing several important reforms and pro-growth policies, the Ryan Budget falls short in two critical respects. First, it does not balance for decades. Secondly, it violates the Budget Control Act by waiving the sequester,” said Club for Growth President Chris Chocola. “By waiving the automatic spending cuts required under the Budget Control Act, this budget is asking Americans to trust future Congresses to do the hard work later. It is hard to have confidence that our long-term fiscal challenges will be met responsibly when the same Congress that passed the Budget Control Act wants to ignore it less than one year later. On balance, the Ryan Budget is a disappointment for fiscal conservatives.”
“The Club for Growth urges Republicans to support a budget that balances in the near future and complies with the Budget Control Act,” added Chocola.
