US Rep. Frank Guinta statement on passage of House budget, "The Path to Prosperity"

“Granite Staters are tired of empty words about putting our nation’s fiscal house in order.  They want action.  And the House delivered it today.”

(Washington –   April 15, 2011)    Rep. Frank Guinta (NH-01) released the following statement:

“The era of reckless spending with sky-high debt and ever deepening deficits officially ended this afternoon.  The passage of our Path to Prosperity budget is the prescription America needs to regain fiscal responsibility and to revitalize our weak economy. 

“We’re sending the Senate a budget that cuts $6.2 trillion from spending, trims $4.4 trillion from the deficit over a decade and protects current Medicare and other entitlement benefits for people age 55 and older, while safeguarding those programs for future generations.  On top of all that, it is expected to create one million new private sector jobs next year alone.

“Granite Staters are tired of empty words about putting our nation’s fiscal house in order.  They want action.  And the House delivered it today.”
