US Rep Guinta statement on passage of FY16 budget


WASHINGTON. D.C. – Congressman Frank Guinta released the following statement today following the passage of a budget for Fiscal Year 2016:


“Today, the House acted to pass a responsible, common-sense spending blueprint that addresses the drivers of our $18 trillion debt.  This budget balances in less than 10 years, provides for a strong national defense, and restores the more than $700 billion cuts from Medicare while strengthening this vital program for our seniors.  For far too long, Washington has maintained a ‘spend first, pay later’ attitude.  Granite Staters deserve better.  You deserve an efficient and accountable government that spends your taxpayer dollars wisely.  A balanced budget means a healthier economy; and, I look forward to working with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to rein in our debt and deficit while growing our economy for all Americans.”
