Congressman French Hill (AR-2) Votes for a Balanced Budget

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, the U.S. House of Representatives passed the Conference Report to S. Con. Res.11, Establishing the budget for the United States Government for Fiscal Year 2016 and Setting forth Appropriate Budgetary Levels for Fiscal Years 2017 through 2025, by a vote of 226-197. Following passage of the resolution, Congressman French Hill (AR-2) released the below statement:

“The House cleared the final hurdle on the grueling road towards passing a budget. Now, for the first time in nearly 14 years, the House and Senate will pass a 10-year balanced budget that sets the stage to send a full repeal of the President’s healthcare law to the President’s desk. By passing this balanced budget that eliminates wasteful government spending, repeals Obamacare, preserves Social Security and Medicare for current beneficiaries and future generations, and commits to providing a strong national defense, we are helping hardworking families thrive in America and putting our Nation back on the path to prosperity.”
