U.S. Congressman Dave Reichert (WA-8) issued the following statement after the release of the Pathway to Prosperity 2015 Republican Budget:
"The American people know that it is long past time that our government focused on responsible spending and that is what the Republican Budget offers. Hardworking Americans deserve to know their tax dollars will be used sensibly and fairly, and that can only be guaranteed if we commit to cutting waste, creating jobs, and balancing our budget. The Republican budget does that. It would cut $5.1 trillion in spending and balance the budget by 2024, finally ending the practice of spending money we don't have. This budget offers Americans both financial freedom and financial security, and I applaud Chairman Ryan for putting out ideas to get our country back on the right track."
