This budget resolution puts a much-needed cap on this year's spending bills. It's clear the Senate wants to spend more money, and this Budget Resolution will help us keep spending down. Without this resolution, there would have been no cap on spending, making it nearly impossible to enforce fiscal restraint as Congress considers its annual spending bills. Together with the budget reforms that we are pushing, this resolution is a vital tool to help us keep spending under control. By keeping both taxes and spending down, we can reduce the deficit and balance the budget.
