WASHINGTON (Wednesday, Oct. 11, 2017) – U.S. Rep. Luke Messer (IN-06) today urged the U.S. Senate to pass the House’s budget plan that calls for $200 billion in spending cuts, balances within 10 years, and paves the way for tax cuts.

The Building a Better America budget, which passed the House last week, also includes robust funding to rebuild the U.S. military and secure the border. The U.S. Senate has yet to bring the House budget to a vote.

“Too often, the Senate seems to punt on the big issues, and Hoosiers are tired of it,” Messer said. “President Trump and the House are working to get spending under control and cut taxes, but the Senate continues to stand in the way. The U.S. Senate needs to pass the House budget, open the pathway to tax reform and prove to Hoosiers it’s part of the solution not the problem.”

The Senate’s proposed budget does not include the mandatory spending cuts advanced by the House and does not balance over any length of time.
