It is up to Congress to find a solution to our nation’s budgetary problems. With sequestration looming in our near future it is time for my colleagues and I to work together to set our country on a path to financial solvency while upholding the necessary spending that provides for our national security and social programs.
The plan introduced by Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan does not meet the criteria that a successfully balanced budget would yield. His truly partisan approach will surely continue to divide Congress and our nation on this issue.
