“YES” on the Lee Budget

On Wednesday, the Senate will vote on a budget resolution (S.CON.RES.44) introduced by Senator Mike Lee (R-UT) that mirrors The Heritage Foundation’s “Saving the American Dream” plan.  At its core, the Lee Budget reorients the federal government towards its constitutionally appropriate role, cutting the size of the federal government in half by 2025 and achieving balance by 2017.

No aspect of the federal government is left untouched.  From comprehensive tax reform and an overhaul of the regulatory apparatus to real entitlement reform and the repeal of Obamacare, the Lee Budget is a remarkable document that, if implemented, would give Americans greater choice and the freedom to improve their own financial future.

The Lee Budget is a serious proposal that addresses our nation’s mounting fiscal challenges, and the results cannot be overstated.  It is the only way we can ensure future generations are not saddled with a massive debt burden that keeps them from having the opportunity to achieve the American dream.

Heritage Action supports the Lee Budget and will include it as a key vote in our scorecard.
