ICYMI: Chairman Arrington joins Mornings with Maria
Today, House Budget Committee Chairman Jodey Arrington (R-TX) joined “Mornings with Maria” on Fox Business to discuss the Committee’s passage of the House GOP budget resolution, the ongoing battle over government funding, and the importance of refocusing the budget on America’s national priorities.
Chairman Arrington on Progress in Spending Talks
“This is the debate you want from your Republican majority. We're going line-by-line, account by account, to root out the woke and waste and right size the bureaucracy, strengthen the military, secure the border, and put the Democrats in a position where they must answer to the American people: Do you want to shut the government down? Do you want to secure the border? Which do you choose?
I think the American people are ready to make their sentiment loud and clear to the administration. So, I think we're on the right track. I think we'll get something done this weekend, and I think it will hit all our objectives, policy, and budget.”
Chairman Arrington on Cracking Reckless Spending
“It’s what has ignited the cost-of-living crisis, it's where we've got this record inflation and interest, and it's a drag on the economy. It's driving this unsustainable debt that's going to bankrupt the country. So, this is the first step… the 10-year balanced budget that will reduce 16 trillion that we passed out of our Budget Committee yesterday.”
Chairman Arrington on the Border
“We've got to not just get the budget targets right but also put the policies of securing the border. There are other policies too, but securing the border would be at the top of the list – putting that in the funding package – and sending it over to the Senate.”
