FreedomWorks Applauds House Budget Committee’s FY 2019 Budget Proposal

WASHINGTON, DC – FreedomWorks applauds the FY 2019 budget resolution approved on Thursday by the House Budget Committee. If passed, the proposal will facilitate $302 billion in spending cuts. The proposal is a step in the right direction to establish fiscal responsibility in Congress.

Jason Pye, FreedomWorks Vice President of Legislative Affairs, commented:

"We applaud Chairman Womack and the House Budget Committee for producing a budget for FY 2019. A key component of this budget is reconciliation instructions to 11 House committees to achieve at $302 billion in spending cuts over ten years. After the fiscal profligacy of the Bipartisan Budget Act and the omnibus, the spending cuts that would be achieved under the FY 2019 budget are a step in the right direction."

"Although the House Budget Committee is stepping up, whether the Senate will produce a budget or even consider the House’s budget, should it pass, is an open question. If the House passes this budget, we urge Leader McConnell and Senate Republicans to do their jobs and consider a budget that begins to put America back on a sustainable path."
