             THE AMERICAN PEOPLE DESERVE A BALANCED BUDGET

  The SPEAKER. The Chair recognizes the gentleman from Virginia (Mr. 
Hurt) for 5 minutes.
  Mr. HURT. Mr. Speaker, the American people know that a budget is one 
of the most important documents produced by any legislative body. It is 
a document that reflects the values and priorities of our government 
and our Nation; and while it is a document that is a reflection of 
today, more importantly, it is a document that lays out a vision for 
our Nation's future--the future for our children and the future that 
they will inherit.
  So now, for the first time in 4 years, the American people are able 
to compare, side by side, the three competing visions for our future as 
proposed by the House, as proposed by the Senate, and as proposed by 
the President. Two of these proposals would give to our children more 
taxes, more spending--and neither ever reaches balance. There is only 
one proposal, the House budget, that would instead give to our children 
a balanced budget and a brighter future of freedom and opportunity.
  Now is the time to choose the budget that reflects our American 
values. The American people and future generations of Americans deserve 
a balanced budget.
