Price statement on budget conference agreement

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Tom Price, M.D. (GA-06), a member of the House and Senate budget conference committee, issued the following statement regarding the agreement.

“It is increasingly obvious that success – particularly in divided government – has to be measured in positive steps, not leaps and bounds,” said Congressman Price. “But in doing so, the American people expect their elected officials to find common ground without sacrificing the principles we hold dear.

“This agreement – more than $20 billion in deficit reduction compared to current law with zero tax increases – reflects both that common ground and our conservative principles. Just as important, we are jumpstarting the appropriations process so that future spending decisions reflect our priorities.

“Moving forward, the manner in which spending reductions occur will not be based on arbitrary cuts that usurp the proper role of Congress in determining the nation’s budget priorities. Instead, this package relies on smarter cuts and common sense reforms, which make incremental progress toward the ultimate goal – a smaller, more efficient and accountable Washington.”

Congressman Tom Price, M.D., is vice chairman of the House Committee on the Budget. He is a member of the House Committee on Ways and Means, as well as the House Committee on Education and the Workforce.
