Today, the House of Representatives passed the Building A Better America 2018 budget in a 219 to 206 vote.
Speaker Paul Ryan (R., Wis.) said today that the budget will rein in our national debt, strengthen our national defense, help grow the economy, and pave the way for tax reform.
"It paves the way for historic tax reform," Ryan said. "It unlocks the reconciliation process. We need to pass this budget so that we can deliver real relief for middle income families across this country."
"We haven't reformed this tax system since 1986," the speaker said. "We need to pass this budget so we can help bring more jobs, fairer taxes, and bigger paychecks for people across this country."
