Priorities

Last week, the Senate worked well into the night to pass a budget I’m incredibly proud of.


Why?

Because this budget not only provides a path to repeal Obamacare, it rejects President Obama’s tax-and-spend policies by slashing $5.1 trillion in spending over the next ten years to balance our federal budget.

We Texans already know a thing or two about balancing budgets…

Obama Budget Defeated 98-1 In Senate Vote (Washington Times)

President Obama’s budget suffered its latest ignominious defeat when the Senate rejected it on a 98-1 vote Tuesday evening, capping off the first votes of the budget season.
