Fleischmann Speaks In Support Of The Require A Plan Act

Tuesday, February 5, 2013

Congressman Chuck Fleischmann delivered the following remarks in support of the Require a Plan Act on the House floor:

“I rise today in support of the Require a Plan Act. Each year, law requires the President to submit a budget by the first Monday in February. Yesterday, President Obama missed this deadline for the fourth time in five years. Mr. Speaker, the American people know what it’s like to work hard in tough times and live on a budget. When my wife and I started our small business, we only made 50 dollars that first month.

  We worked hard, and made sacrifices to live within our means.  Families across this great nation are still doing that and it’s embarrassing that the President and Senate Democrats refuse to put forth a plan.  Republicans have produced a budget that made tough choices but reduces our debt and achieves fiscal responsibility. The Require a Plan Act demands that the President explain to the American people how he intends to do the same.  The great people of our nation deserve at least that.”
