WASHINGTON – House Budget Committee Ranking Republican Paul Ryan (WI-01) issued the following statement upon joining the House Republicans’ Pledge to America – a principled governing agenda with policy solutions to help spur job creation, cut government spending and reform government:
“I stand in strong support of the House Republicans’ Pledge to America. We don't need to reinvent America; we need to reclaim it. We need to get the fundamentals right for sustained economic growth and job creation. We need to restrain the explosive growth of government spending. We need to reform Congress, holding elected leaders accountable to those they serve.
“Policymakers need to rededicate themselves to our timeless principles, the Founding ideas that make us so exceptional, and apply these principles to the challenges of the day. There is no question that the Republican Party lost its way over the years, straying from our core values. By standing on principle with better solutions, we will continue our work to earn back the trust of the American people. This Pledge marks a critical first step in getting our nation back on track and restoring the promise and prosperity of our exceptional nation.”
