Dear Chairman Ryan,
On behalf of more than 1.9 million Americans for Prosperity activists in all 50 states, I applaud you for introducing a smart and serious budget blueprint for fiscal year 2013. Your budget tackles the fiscal crisis in Washington head on and offers our country a future of lower spending, lower taxes, and lower debt than what the President proposed in February.
For decades the size and scope of the federal government has grown without restraint, leading us into the mess of massive debts that we see today. As you have rightly pointed out, if we stay on our current path government spending will consume an ever larger share of our economy and the public debt will continue to climb rapidly to unconscionable and unsustainable levels. Such government excess will be a huge drag on our economy and the prospects of future generations.
