NUNNELEE STATEMENT ON THE RYAN BUDGET PLAN

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Alan Nunnelee (R-Miss.) released a statement in support of the Ryan budget plan:
“This agreement is a small step in the right direction. For the first time in years, we are reducing the deficit by addressing mandatory spending, the real driver of our debt crisis, and doing so without raising taxes. While I would have preferred bigger reforms, the Democrats who control the Senate and White House would not go along without another huge, job-killing tax increase. Furthermore, the uncertainty caused by Washington lurching from one crisis to another has damaged our economy and shattered the public’s confidence in Washington’s ability to govern. Setting a budget for the next two years will help alleviate some of this uncertainty and allow Congress to focus on jobs, economic growth, and the fight against Obamacare.”
