Press Release

Washington, DC – U.S. Rep. Tom Rooney (FL-17), a member of the House Appropriations Committee, issued the following statement on House passage of the “Path to Prosperity” budget blueprint for fiscal year 2015:

“Our massive national debt poses the gravest threat to the future of our country. For the sake of our children, we have to start making the tough decisions to solve this debt crisis. Our budget cuts wasteful spending, saves Medicare and Social Security for the next generation, and balances within 10 years. It keeps our nation secure by rejecting the President’s proposed cuts to national defense, invests in our future through programs that give our students and workforce access to the knowledge and skills they need to succeed, and reforms the tax code to build an environment where the free market can thrive and create good jobs.”
