Congressman Patrick McHenry (NC-10) issued the following statement today after his vote in favor of the House-passed Republican budget resolution, sponsored by Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan (R-WI).

“Our budget crisis is simple – we’re spending money we don't have, creating a massive budget deficit, and leaving an enormous national debt.  Today, I voted for a budget that balances and takes a bold step towards solving the spending problem we’ve ignored for too long,” said Congressman McHenry.  “President Obama has proven unwilling to make the tough decisions to confront the reality of our debt crisis.  If the President will not lead, I hope he will follow House Republicans in acting now to preserve the entitlement programs that will soon threaten to bankrupt our economy.   We must be clear – under our plan, those currently receiving Social Security and Medicare and those near retirement age won’t see changes or cuts.  We will fulfill our promises to seniors today - and provide solutions that will ensure health and retirement security for future generations.”
