WASHINGTON—Last night, the House Budget Committee approved the House Republican budget resolution for fiscal year 2014. The House will consider it on the floor next week. Upon passage of the resolution, Chairman Paul Ryan of Wisconsin issued the following statement:

“I’m proud of my colleagues for working together to write this budget. We owe the American people a responsible, balanced budget. And for the third straight year, we’ve delivered. Our plan balances the budget in just ten years—without raising taxes. We’ve got to stop spending money we don’t have. By balancing the budget, we will promote a healthier economy and help create jobs.

“But a balanced budget is a means to a larger end: the well-being of the people. Our budget will give economic security to families and seniors. It will repair the safety net for the poor. And it will expand opportunity for all.

“I understand not everyone shares our view. And I respect that difference of opinion. If the President and Senate Democrats disagree with our plan, they should offer their own. I’m happy to see the Senate Democrats have written a budget. The only problem is, it doesn’t balance—ever. It simply takes more from hardworking families to spend more in Washington. And we’re still waiting for the President to submit a budget, though he’s already six weeks late.

“Tonight, we took an important step toward achieving the reasonable goal of a balanced budget. We look forward to engaging the full House in this debate next week. I invite the President and Senate Democrats to join in the effort.”
