Congressman Chris Collins, NY-27, issued the following statement following the House Budget vote Thursday:

"Today, the House of Representatives passed the responsible, balanced budget the American people deserve. This budget balances in 10 years while protecting Medicare. Working directly with Budget Chairman Paul Ryan, I was able to insert a specific protection for Medicare Advantage, a program many local seniors rely on.

"A balanced budget is critical to helping spur economic growth, create the right environment for businesses to expand and add jobs, and secure a stronger financial future for hardworking taxpayers.

"The budget being advanced in the Senate raises a trillion dollars in new taxes and never balances. Western New York and Finger Lakes families and seniors know that is not the answer. They are owed a responsible, balanced budget focused on getting our spending and debt under control so we can regain control of our future. The budget passed by the House today does just that."
