WASHINGTON, DC - House Democratic Whip Steny H. Hoyer (MD) released the following statement today on the release of OMB's Mid-Session Review:

“Today’s release of OMB’s Mid-Session Review serves as yet another reminder that we must take a balanced approach to reducing our deficit, one that includes both spending cuts and revenues. While many challenges remain to get our fiscal house in order, the Mid-Session Review shows that if we find the right balance of spending cuts and tax reform, we will be able to achieve the $4 trillion in deficit reduction necessary to stabilize our debt and continue to grow our economy.”
