Our budget will balance, but it’s also about growing our economy, growing jobs and building economic strength for our future...


This week, President Obama dropped a bomb of a budget proposal, one that calls for more taxes, more spending and more government bureaucracy. It never balances – ever – and would lead to an explosion of America’s national debt to record levels.

Every day, as representative of Ohio’s Eighth District and as Speaker of the House, my focus is on building a stronger economy and preparing our kids and grandkids for the challenges and opportunities of the future. 

The CBO warns that the national debt will continue to grow, “eventually increasing the risk of a fiscal crisis.”

“Meanwhile, Democrats here in Washington continue to play their usual politics, using their old playbook of pitting one group of Americans against another. And frankly, it’s pretty obvious that their efforts have failed. They’ve fallen flat because the American people are still asking the question, ‘Where are the jobs?,’ and these political votes provide no answers."


"Taxpayer dollars should be spent wisely or not at all, and the budget reforms the House has passed would make Washington live by this principle."

Middle class families are doing everything they can to scrape by, and they deserve a better shot than they’re getting under this administration.
