WASHINGTON—Today, House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan of Wisconsin and Committee Republicans released their plan to balance the budget in ten years. It is a responsible plan to cut spending, reform government, and foster a healthier economy. It provides economic security for families, repairs the safety net for the poor, strengthens retirement for seniors, and expands opportunity for all.

Writing in today’s Wall Street Journal
, Chairman Ryan makes the case that we need to stop spending money we don’t have. Ryan writes: “Yet the most important question isn’t how we balance the budget. It’s why. A budget is a means to an end, and the end isn’t a neat and tidy spreadsheet. It’s the well-being of all Americans. By giving families stability and protecting them from tax hikes, our budget will promote a healthier economy and help create jobs. Most important, our budget will reignite the American Dream, the idea that anyone can make it in this country.”
