Mountain of debt vs. Vibrant Economy Video

The spending debate in Washington “is about more than just numbers and politics,” says GOP Conference Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA). “It’s about the kind of future we want for our children and grandchildren. Do we want to hand them a mountain of debt and all the worries that go with it,” she asks. “Or do we want them to inherit a vibrant economy and a future full of opportunity?”
  • Spending is the problem: “Instead of campaigning for higher taxes,” said Chair McMorris Rodgers, “the president should lead an effort to begin addressing our nation’s spending problem.”
  • It’s time to tackle spending. Period: We don’t need more tax hikes, Speaker Boehner told CBS News – “the federal government will have more revenue this year than any year in our history. It’s time to tackle spending. Period.”
  • Americans say cut more, not less: Americans believe the president’s sequester is bad policy, but “53 percent prefer that Congress move ahead with the current sequester cuts or a plan that contains even more cuts.”
  • Fixing the tax code to grow our economy: Speaker Boehner told Meet the Press that tax reform should be about “closing loopholes, bringing the rates down for all Americans, making the tax code fairer” to grow our economy.
  • Tax reform will be H.R. 1: “Should tax reform focus more on funding government or on creating jobs?” asked Speaker Boehner. “I’m for more jobs.”
  • No reason to delay Keystone XL: The State Department issued another report that found no reason to keep delaying the Keystone XL energy pipeline. “It is time for President Obama to stand up for middle-class jobs and energy security and approve the Keystone pipeline,” said Speaker Boehner.
