President Commends House for Passing a Responsible Budget
Statement by the President

March 25, 2004


I commend the House for passing a responsible budget that advances our three highest priorities: defending America, winning the war on terror, and promoting growth and job creation, while cutting the deficit in half within five years. I am also pleased that this moves us closer to making the tax relief for America's workers and families permanent.

I urge the House and Senate to reach agreement quickly, and pass a budget based on my principles of funding what's necessary to protect America and keep our economy growing, while restraining spending elsewhere.
