Ryan Statement on Democrats’ Failure to Budget and “Unprecedented Failure to Govern”

WASHINGTON – House Budget Committee Ranking Republican Paul Ryan (WI) issued the following statement in response to House Democratic Leaders’ intention not to offer a budget resolution this year:

“I am genuinely disappointed to learn that House Democrats will make no attempt to write a budget this year. Rather than cut government spending, they chose instead to cut and run – and to simply avoid the hard choices American families and small businesses must make every day. This unprecedented failure to govern is especially alarming as spending, deficits, and debt continue to spiral out of control. The American people deserve – and continue to demand – better.”
