Congressman K. Michael Conaway (R-Texas) issued the followed statement regarding the passage of a budget bill:

“Today the House of Representatives passed a budget that would provide a better future for my grandchildren and yours.  This budget encourages the entrepreneurial spirit that defines America.  It does not raise taxes and would balance in 10 years. It also addresses the long term solvency of Medicare and Social Security. The longer we fail to act on this issue, the more painful the necessary changes will be. The Obama Administration made the situation with Medicare worse by raiding money from Medicare to pay for Obamacare.  The Democrats in the Senate and the President need to stop playing politics and come to the table.  Some have questioned why House Republicans would pass a budget that takes on this sensitive issue when Senate Democratic leaders have said they will not bring up a budget.  My reply is that regardless of if the Senate acts, there is value in calmly and rationally laying out a plan to address this issue.”
