Tom Price rips 'unserious' Senate budget in op-ed

"It is an outrage that after governing for four years without a budget, Senate Democrats have put forth a plan that enthusiastically endorses the exact same policies that are failing the American people," Price writes in the piece. "For our part, House Republicans have developed a budget – The Path to Prosperity – which brings our budget into balance within a decade without raising taxes on hard-working Americans. The House Republican budget is a responsible, balanced plan that honors our commitments to America’s most important priorities while finally solving our nation's debt crisis."

Price's focus on Senate Democrats' plan and his strong defense of the House Republican budget will likely become a big issue if he runs for the Senate. Fellow Rep. Paul Broun (R-Ga.), who has already announced his Senate bid, has come out against both plans, arguing Republicans didn't go nearly far enough and that their plan fails to "seriously cut" spending.
