"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."
