Burr Statement on Passage of Republican Senate Budget

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Senator Richard Burr (R-N.C.) released the following statement on last night’s passage of the Republican Senate budget 52-46:

“Passage of a budget that balances in ten years is a critical step to getting our country in the right direction without raising taxes on American families. After hours of open debate on the issue, the Senate advanced a serious proposal that puts our country on the path to fiscal responsibility. North Carolinians understand the fundamental reality that you can’t spend more than you take in.  It’s time that Washington recognizes this reality as well.”
