It's time we give at least equal weight to a plan that takes job creation seriously, reflects the will of the American people and generates a government surplus in 10 years. According to a Gallup poll published March 31, the top two public preferences for improving the economy are "Stop sending jobs overseas" and "Create more infrastructure work." Our budget does more than any other plan out there -- we even create a new infrastructure investment bank so we can plan wisely for the new economy.
Republicans have rejected the growth model the American people strongly prefer. Our budget embraces it. There's no reason to hold our noses and vote for the Ryan proposal in the name of responsibility -- it is a deeply irresponsible document. The People's Budget, in comparison, speaks for itself: a surplus in 10 years, an end to the wars that have drained our Treasury, a fairer and more transparent tax code and bold investments in job creation.
This conversation will continue long after Congress moves on from the budget vote. Our budget is a blueprint for American prosperity and fiscal responsibility. It is the People's Budget because it embraces the values and supports the interests of the American people.
