The Honorable Jim Jordan
Dear Congressman Jordan,
On behalf of its more than 300,000 activists and supporters nationwide, the Center for Individual Freedom (CFIF) wishes to thank you and the Republican Study Committee (RSC) for proposing a truly conservative, no-nonsense and pro-growth FY2012 budget plan that promises to aggressively tackle the nation’s debt and spending crisis through smaller government and spending restraint, not tax increases.
The RSC budget proposal, “Honest Solutions,” complements the bold plan put forth by House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan, which CFIF also strongly supports. It provides a path to fiscal sanity by repealing ObamaCare, reforming unsustainable entitlement programs, reducing federal spending to 18% of GDP, below the historical average, and eliminating deficit spending by balancing the budget in less than ten years. Furthermore, it promotes growth by making the 2001 and 2003 tax cuts permanent and through further tax deceases.
In short, the RSC “Honest Solutions” budget blueprint recognizes that the answer to the nation’s debt and spending crisis is not higher taxes, more spending and greater government intrusion, as President Obama and a substantial majority of Congressional Democrats continue to advocate. The answer, as both Chairman Ryan’s and the RSC proposal outline, is a more efficient and limited federal government that encourages, not discourages, economic growth.
