“The House Republicans were elected to a new majority and they have courageously, intelligently and responsibly laid out a new plan for America’s future. They’ve met their duty that they were sent here to fulfill.

“We have never needed a budget more than we need it today. We are facing a systemic threat to America’s financial health.

“The budget that they’ve offered will alter the debt course from unsustainable to sustainable. It will take us from decline to prosperity. It is the right thing for America.

“The Senate Democrats have abandoned their obligations and have refused to offer a budget for three straight years now. They didn’t bother to write one last year, and they’re going to miss the April 1st deadline this year, and they’re not going to produce one this year.

“Sen. Harry Reid, the Democratic leader, said it would be foolish to have a budget. The Senate’s Democratic majority has forfeited their claim to leadership for America.

“If the voters give the Republicans in the Senate the honor of having the majority and the leadership, we will work with the House to pass a congressional budget. It will be an honest budget. It will change the debt course of America.”
