Crossroads GPS Statement on Ryan Budget

 WASHINGTON – Crossroads Grassroots Policy Strategies (Crossroads GPS) today released the statement below on Rep. Paul Ryan’s budget from Steven Law, president and CEO of Crossroads GPS:

“Our national debt has surged by $6 trillion to an astounding $16.7 trillion, or nearly $53,000 per citizen, during President Obama’s tenure, yet he continues to insist that the national debt is not a problem.

“The way forward is with the plan by Rep. Paul Ryan, which will balance the budget within 10 years without raising taxes.  Instead, it reforms our entitlement programs in a responsible way, and modestly limits the growth in overall spending.

“Meanwhile, liberals in the Senate led by Budget Committee Chair Patty Murray, have proposed a budget that would increase taxes by nearly $1 trillion and still never balance the budget. It is plain that the House understands the debt problem facing the nation, while the Senate is more interested in raising taxes.”

Crossroads GPS is a policy and grassroots advocacy organization that is committed to educating, equipping and mobilizing millions of American citizens to take action on the critical economic and legislative issues that will shape our nation’s future.
