House GOP Budget

With control of both Chambers of Congress, Republicans have a responsibility to pass a budget plan. However, House Republicans remain deeply divided and have been unable to bring a budget resolution to the House Floor months after the April 15 deadline to complete work on a budget. Instead of meeting their responsibility to pass a budget, Republicans have moved ahead with the appropriations process to fund government agencies without agreeing on a plan for how much should be spent. A bipartisan budget agreement on the total funding number – one that lifts the sequester level spending caps – will be necessary for any spending measure to become law. House Democrats will continue to call for a bipartisan budget agreement that allows us to adequately invest in our nation’s future without including unrelated and controversial policy riders.
