WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today Congressman Mo Brooks (R-AL) voted for the Ryan Budget, the Fiscal Year 2013 Budget Resolution.  Brooks said, “A balanced budget is critical to America’s future because it reduces financial risk and increases economic opportunity. The Congressional Budget Office estimates that the Ryan Budget balances in 10 years, without raising taxes; Ryan’s Budget moves America in a financially responsible direction. While I prefer a quicker balanced budget, and have voted that way, after an alternative four-year balanced budget plan failed to muster sufficient votes, the Ryan Budget was the only budget left that even pretended to balance in the future.”
