“We're introducing a budget that balances in 10 years—without raising taxes,” wrote Chairman Paul Ryan in the Wall Street Journal.

“We owe it to the American people to balance the federal budget -- and Republicans have a plan to do it in 10 years. Our balanced budget is focused on growing our economy and expanding opportunities for all Americans.”

To most Americans, a “balanced” budget is one that doesn’t add to the deficit. Today, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney made very clear that a balanced budget is something the American people should never expect to see from this president.

Speaker Boehner unveiled a statement signed by 180 economists who agree our spending-driven deficits are hurting the economy.

At a time when American families are being forced to do more with less, the government in Washington continues to spend money we don’t have. The result: a booming budget deficit that economists say is hurting families and hurting our economy.

Speaker Boehner will appear on CNBC’s The Kudlow Report tonight to discuss the importance of solving the nation’s spending problem and promoting economic growth for American families and small businesses.

A new Fox News survey shows the public has spoken – and a bipartisan majority wants the Keystone XL pipeline built.

“Government spending has driven our national debt up past $16 trillion,” says Speaker John Boehner in a new video. As CBS News reported this weekend, the debt has “increased by more than $6 trillion” since President Obama took office in 2009 – “the largest increase to date under any U.S. president.”

On Meet the Press, Speaker Boehner discussed the importance of addressing Washington’s spending problem, replacing the president’s sequester with smarter cuts, fixing our tax code for all Americans to help our economy grow, and more.

President Obama got more than $600 billion in tax hikes (with no spending cuts) just last month, and veteran journalist Bob Woodward says the president is “moving the goal posts” in his campaign to replace his sequester with even higher taxes.
