President's Statement on House Passing Budget Resolution
I applaud the House for passing a budget framework that protects America, helps economic growth, funds our priorities, and keeps us on track to cut the deficit in half by 2009. This is a responsible budget that reins in spending to limits not seen in years. I appreciate the Members of Congress in the House and the Senate who worked hard to produce this agreement and who support its passage. It is not the government's money that gets spent in Washington, D.C.; it is the people's money -- and taxpayer dollars must be spent wisely, or not spent at all.
