House Conservatives to Introduce Own Budget Plan

Would eliminate deficit faster than Ryan's proposal


The conservative Republican Study Committee (RSC) will put forward an alternative, more aggressive budget proposal than the main House Republican budget authored this week by Rep. Paul Ryan.

Chairman Steve Scalise (R-La.) said the budget amendment offered by the large conservative bloc would call for eliminating the federal deficit within four years — more than twice as fast as the Ryan budget, which balances in a decade. 

It's the third consecutive year that House conservatives will present their own budget plan.
