The following is a statement by Krisztina Pusok, Research and Policy Director for the American Consumer Institute:

“America desperately needs responsible Congressional budgeting. For too long, the federal government has engaged in reckless fiscal spending that has left the economy in a dire state. We welcome Senator Braun’s proposal to roll back excessive deficit spending, increase accountability, and lower inflation. Taxpayers need a fiscally responsible budget proposal that puts the economy back on its feet and holds the government accountable for its spending. Braun’s plan seeks to do just that.”
