Congressman Tim Ryan’s Statement on President’s Fiscal Year 2014 Budget Proposal
Washington, D.C. – Congressman Tim Ryan released the following statement today in response to the release of President Obama’s budget proposal for fiscal year 2014:
“President Obama’s 2014 budget proposal is a balanced document that provides a way forward and should find common ground with my Republican colleagues. I don’t agree with everything in the President’s budget, but I do agree with his proposals for energy independence and pre-school education for all of our children. The President also knows that job creation is job one—and this budget provides funding for manufacturing hubs that build on the success of the National Additive Manufacturing Innovation Institute in Youngstown. The President’s budget proposal includes money for vital research in health care, and the building of roads and bridges—the kinds of investments that will create jobs, grow our economy, and reduce the deficit in a way that is both responsible and balanced.
I applaud the President for presenting a budget that lifts the burden of sequester. Now it is up to Speaker Boehner to appoint budget conferees so we can get down to the business of fiscal responsibility.”
