SEC. 4. DIRECT SPENDING.

  (a) Means-tested Direct Spending.--
          (1) For means-tested direct spending, the average 
        rate of growth in the total level of outlays during the 
        10-year period preceding fiscal year 2015 is 6.8 
        percent.
          (2) For means-tested direct spending, the estimated 
        average rate of growth in the total level of outlays 
        during the 10-year period beginning with fiscal year 
        2015 is 5.4 percent under current law.
          (3) This concurrent resolution retains the social 
        safety net that has lifted millions of Americans out of 
        poverty and protects both the Supplemental Nutrition 
        Assistance Program and Medicaid from draconian spending 
        cuts.
  (b) Nonmeans-tested Direct Spending.--
          (1) For nonmeans-tested direct spending, the average 
        rate of growth in the total level of outlays during the 
        10-year period preceding fiscal year 2015 is 5.7 
        percent.
          (2) For nonmeans-test direct spending, the estimated 
        average rate of growth in the total level of outlays 
        during the 10-year period beginning with fiscal year 
        2015 is 5.4 percent under current law.
          (3) The following reforms are proposed in this 
        concurrent resolution for nonmeans-tested direct 
        spending:
                  (A) For Medicare, this budget rejects 
                proposals to end the Medicare guarantee and 
                shift rising health care costs onto seniors by 
                replacing Medicare with vouchers or premium 
                support for the purchase of private insurance. 
                Such proposals will expose seniors and persons 
                with disabilities on fixed incomes to 
                unacceptable financial risks, and they will 
                weaken the traditional Medicare program. 
                Instead, this budget builds on the success of 
                the Affordable Care Act, which made significant 
                strides in health-care cost containment and put 
                into place a framework for continuous 
                innovation. This budget supports comprehensive 
                reforms to give physicians and other care 
                providers incentives to provide high-quality, 
                coordinated, efficient care, in a manner 
                consistent with the goals of fiscal 
                sustainability. It makes no changes that reduce 
                benefits available to seniors and individuals 
                with disabilities in Medicare.
                  (B) Any savings derived from changes or 
                reforms to Medicare and Social Security should 
                be used to extend the solvency of these vital 
                programs and not be used to offset the cost of 
                cutting taxes.
                              ----------

                 TITLE II--ESTIMATES OF DIRECT SPENDING

SEC. 201. DIRECT SPENDING.

  (a) Means-tested Direct Spending.--
          (1) For means-tested direct spending, the average 
        rate of growth in the total level of outlays during the 
        10-year period preceding fiscal year 2015 is 6.8 
        percent.
          (2) For means-tested direct spending, the estimated 
        average rate of growth in the total level of outlays 
        during the 11-year period beginning with fiscal year 
        2014 is 5.8 percent under current law.
          (3) The following reforms are proposed in this 
        concurrent resolution for means-tested direct spending:
                  (A) The American Recovery and Reinvestment 
                Act expanded a number of tax credits targeted 
                at working families to boost relief during hard 
                economic times. The Better Off Budget retains 
                the improvements made to the Earned Income Tax 
                Credit (qualifying children and phase-out 
                range), Child and Dependent Care Credit, and 
                the American Opportunity Tax Credit. These 
                credits fuel demand for American businesses by 
                putting money in the hands of families. The 
                Better Off Budget also adopts the EITC 
                improvements proposed in President Obama's 
                Fiscal Year 2015 Budget Request, which would 
                double the maximum credit and increase the 
                income level at which the credit is fully 
                phased out. The proposal would also make the 
                credit available to young adult workers and 
                raise the upper age to 67, which harmonizes it 
                with recent increases in the Social Security 
                full retirement age. With this reform, the 
                Better Off Budget would help reduce poverty for 
                childless households and provide substantial 
                relief to approximately 13.5 million low-income 
                workers.
                  (B) As a part of its response to the recent 
                financial crisis, Congress wisely enacted tax 
                provisions in the American Recovery and 
                Reinvestment Act and subsequent job creation 
                legislative packages that provided direct 
                assistance to working individuals. The 
                expiration of both the Making Work Pay tax 
                credit and the temporary cut to the payroll tax 
                have slowed our country's economic recovery and 
                taken money out of the pockets of hard-working 
                Americans. The Better Off Budget implements a 
                new Hard Work Tax Credit to reward Americans 
                for their hard work. This policy would provide 
                a refundable tax credit for 2014 and 2015 for 
                up to $600 for working individuals earning less 
                than $95,000 and up to $1,200 for households 
                earning less than $190,000. The credit would be 
                continued in 2016 with the maximum amount of 
                $300 for individuals and $600 for households. 
                Through the enactment of the Hard Work Tax 
                Credit, the Better Off Budget would immediately 
                increase the disposable income of low and 
                middle income families.
                  (C) The unemployment rate is still far higher 
                than it was when President George W. Bush 
                signed the emergency benefits program into law. 
                Cutting unemployment benefits has damaged our 
                economic recovery. The Better Off Budget 
                extends Emergency Unemployment Compensation to 
                allows those who have lost a job through no 
                fault of their own to claim up to 99 weeks of 
                unemployment benefits in high-unemployment 
                states for up to two years. According to the 
                Economic Policy Institute, this would boost 
                real GDP growth by 0.4 percentage points and 
                increase employment by 539,000 jobs in 2014.
                  (D) The American Recovery and Reinvestment 
                Act temporarily increased benefit levels for 
                beneficiaries of the Supplemental Nutrition 
                Assistance Program. The Better Off Budget would 
                reverse recent SNAP cuts adopted in the 
                Agricultural Act of 2014 and return benefits to 
                ARRA levels. These reforms will help combat 
                hunger and boost economic growth.
  (b) Nonmeans-tested Direct Spending.--
          (1) For non means-tested direct spending, the average 
        rate of growth in the total level of outlays during the 
        10-year period preceding fiscal year 2015 is 5.7 
        percent.
          (2) For non means-tested direct spending, the 
        estimated average rate of growth in the total level of 
        outlays during the 11-year period beginning with fiscal 
        year 2014 is 5.0 percent under current law.
          (3) The following reforms are proposed in this 
        concurrent resolution for non means-tested direct 
        spending:
                  (A) Medicare is a cornerstone of the American 
                health care system for more than 45 million 
                American seniors. It is an exemplary program 
                that provides the most efficient care to a 
                segment of the population that costs more to 
                treat. The Better Off Budget protects 
                beneficiaries and makes the system even more 
                efficient. It amends Part D of Medicare to 
                allow the Secretary of Health and Human 
                Services to negotiate prescription drug prices 
                with pharmaceutical manufacturers, as the 
                Department of Veterans Affairs currently does, 
                which will save Medicare $157 billion over 10 
                years and will reduce costs for seniors. The 
                budget adopts policies to prohibit ``pay for 
                delay'' agreements that reduce competition and 
                modifies periods of exclusivity to increase 
                availability of needed therapies. The budget 
                also accelerates the use of bundling payments 
                as an alternative to fee-for-service payments. 
                It builds on Affordable Care Act efficiencies 
                in administration of information and payments. 
                Using standardized electronic systems of 
                administration information such as claims, 
                billing payments and eligibility creates a more 
                efficient and less fragmented health care 
                system.
                  (B) The Better Off Budget recognizes that the 
                economic security of veterans, retirees, and 
                the disabled has eroded during the recent 
                economic recession. The Better Off Budget would 
                reverse this trend by expanding benefits for 
                these Americans by adopting the Experimental 
                Price Index for the Elderly (CPI-E) to 
                calculate cost-of-living adjustments for 
                federal retirement programs other than Social 
                Security. Affected programs include civil 
                service retirement, military retirement, 
                Supplemental Security Income, veteran's 
                pensions and compensations. CPI-E is the most 
                sensible and accurate measure of the real costs 
                that seniors face in retirement. Other measures 
                do not adequately take into account rising 
                expenditures in retirement, such as health care 
                costs, and amount to cutting benefits for those 
                on fixed incomes.

authorization of appropriations for the same purpose, upon the 
enactment of such measure, the chair of the Committee on the 
Budget may decrease the allocation to such committee and 
increase the allocation of discretionary spending (budget 
authority and outlays flowing therefrom) to the Committee on 
Appropriations for fiscal year 2015 by an amount equal to the 
new budget authority (and outlays flowing therefrom) provided 
for in a bill or joint resolution making appropriations for the 
same purpose.
  (b) Adjustments to Fund Overseas Contingency Operations/
Global War on Terrorism.--In order to take into account any new 
information included in the budget submission by the President 
for fiscal year 2015, the chair of the Committee on the Budget 
may adjust the allocations, aggregates, and other appropriate 
budgetary levels for Overseas Contingency Operations/Global War 
on Terrorism or the section 302(a) allocation to the Committee 
on Appropriations set forth in the report of this concurrent 
resolution to conform with section 251(c) of the Balanced 
Budget and Emergency Deficit Control Act of 1985 (as adjusted 
by section 251A of such Act).
  (c) Revised Congressional Budget Office Baseline.--The chair 
of the Committee on the Budget may adjust the allocations, 
aggregates, and other appropriate budgetary levels to reflect 
changes resulting from technical and economic assumptions in 
the most recent baseline published by the Congressional Budget 
Office.
  (d) Determinations.--For the purpose of enforcing this 
concurrent resolution on the budget in the House, the 
allocations and aggregate levels of new budget authority, 
outlays, direct spending, new entitlement authority, revenues, 
deficits, and surpluses for fiscal year 2015 and the period of 
fiscal years 2015 through fiscal year 2024 shall be determined 
on the basis of estimates made by the chair of the Committee on 
the Budget and such chair may adjust such applicable levels of 
this concurrent resolution.

SEC. 204. LIMITATION ON LONG-TERM SPENDING.

  (a) In General.--In the House, it shall not be in order to 
consider a bill or joint resolution reported by a committee 
(other than the Committee on Appropriations), or an amendment 
thereto or a conference report thereon, if the provisions of 
such measure have the net effect of increasing direct spending 
in excess of $5,000,000,000 for any period described in 
subsection (b).
  (b) Time Periods.--The applicable periods for purposes of 
this section are any of the four consecutive ten fiscal-year 
periods beginning with fiscal year 2025.

discretionary amounts.
  (c) Adjustments.--The chair of the Committee on the Budget 
may adjust the allocations, aggregates, and other appropriate 
levels for legislation reported by the Committee on Oversight 
and Government Reform that reforms the Federal retirement 
system, if such adjustments do not cause a net increase in the 
deficit for fiscal year 2015 and the period of fiscal years 
2015 through 2024.

10 of rule XXI of the Rules of the House of Representatives or 
section 504.

SEC. 207. CONGRESSIONAL BUDGET OFFICE ESTIMATES.

  (a) Findings.--The House finds the following:
          (1) Costs of Federal housing loans and loan 
        guarantees are treated unequally in the budget. The 
        Congressional Budget Office uses fair-value accounting 
        to measure the costs of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, but 
        determines the cost of other Federal loan and loan-
        guarantee programs on the basis of the Federal Credit 
        Reform Act of 1990 (``FCRA'').
          (2) The fair-value accounting method uses discount 
        rates which incorporate the risk inherent to the type 
        of liability being estimated in addition to Treasury 
        discount rates of the proper maturity length. In 
        contrast, FCRA accounting solely uses the discount 
        rates of the Treasury, failing to incorporate all of 
        the risks attendant to these credit activities.
          (3) The Congressional Budget Office estimates that if 
        fair-value were used to estimate the cost of all new 
        credit activity in 2014, the deficit would be 
        approximately $50 billion higher than under the current 
        methodology.
  (b) Fair Value Estimates.--Upon the request of the chair or 
ranking member of the Committee on the Budget, any estimate 
prepared by the Director of the Congressional Budget Office for 
a measure under the terms of title V of the Congressional 
Budget Act of 1974, ``credit reform'', as a supplement to such 
estimate shall, to the extent practicable, also provide an 
estimate of the current actual or estimated market values 
representing the ``fair value'' of assets and liabilities 
affected by such measure.
  (c) Fair Value Estimates for Housing Programs.--Whenever the 
Director of the Congressional Budget Office prepares an 
estimate pursuant to section 402 of the Congressional Budget 
Act of 1974 of the costs which would be incurred in carrying 
out any bill or joint resolution and if the Director determines 
that such bill or joint resolution has a cost related to a 
housing or residential mortgage program under the FCRA, then 
the Director shall also provide an estimate of the current 
actual or estimated market values representing the ``fair 
value'' of assets and liabilities affected by the provisions of 
such bill or joint resolution that result in such cost.
  (d) Enforcement.--If the Director of the Congressional Budget 
Office provides an estimate pursuant to subsection (b) or (c), 
the chair of the Committee on the Budget may use such estimate 
to determine compliance with the Congressional Budget Act of 
1974 and other budgetary enforcement controls.

SEC. 208. TRANSFERS FROM THE GENERAL FUND OF THE TREASURY TO THE 
                    HIGHWAY TRUST FUND THAT INCREASE PUBLIC 
                    INDEBTEDNESS.

  For purposes of the Congressional Budget Act of 1974, the 
Balanced Budget and Emergency Deficit Control Act of 1985, or 
the rules or orders of the House of Representatives, a bill or 
joint resolution, or an amendment thereto or conference report 
thereon, that transfers funds from the general fund of the 
Treasury to the Highway Trust Fund shall be counted as new 
budget authority and outlays equal to the amount of the 
transfer in the fiscal year the transfer occurs.

SEC. 209. SEPARATE ALLOCATION FOR OVERSEAS CONTINGENCY OPERATIONS/
                    GLOBAL WAR ON TERRORISM.

  (a) Allocation.--In the House, there shall be a separate 
allocation to the Committee on Appropriations for overseas 
contingency operations/global war on terrorism. For purposes of 
enforcing such separate allocation under section 302(f) of the 
Congressional Budget Act of 1974, the ``first fiscal year'' and 
the ``total of fiscal years'' shall be deemed to refer to 
fiscal year 2015. Such separate allocation shall be the 
exclusive allocation for overseas contingency operations/global 
war on terrorism under section 302(a) of such Act. Section 
302(c) of such Act shall not apply to such separate allocation. 
The Committee on Appropriations may provide suballocations of 
such separate allocation under section 302(b) of such Act. 
Spending that counts toward the allocation established by this 
section shall be designated pursuant to section 
251(b)(2)(A)(ii) of the Balanced Budget and Emergency Deficit 
Control Act of 1985.
  (b) Adjustment.--In the House, for purposes of subsection (a) 
for fiscal year 2015, no adjustment shall be made under section 
314(a) of the Congressional Budget Act of 1974 if any 
adjustment would be made under section 251(b)(2)(A)(ii) of the 
Balanced Budget and Emergency Deficit Control Act of 1985.

SEC. 210. EXERCISE OF RULEMAKING POWERS.

  The House adopts the provisions of this title--
          (1) as an exercise of the rulemaking power of the 
        House of Representatives and as such they shall be 
        considered as part of the rules of the House of 
        Representatives, and these rules shall supersede other 
        rules only to the extent that they are inconsistent 
        with other such rules; and
          (2) with full recognition of the constitutional right 
        of the House of Representatives to change those rules 
        at any time, in the same manner, and to the same extent 
        as in the case of any other rule of the House of 
        Representatives.

                           TITLE III--POLICY

SEC. 301. POLICY STATEMENT ON HEALTH CARE LAW REPEAL.

  It is the policy of this resolution that the Patient 
Protection and Affordable Care Act (Public Law 111-148), and 
the Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act of 2010 
(Public Law 111-152) should be repealed.

SEC. 302. POLICY STATEMENT ON MEANS-TESTED WELFARE PROGRAMS.

  (a) Findings.--The House finds that:
          (1) Too many people are trapped at the bottom rungs 
        of the economic ladder, and every citizen should have 
        the opportunity to rise, escape from poverty, and 
        achieve their own potential.
          (2) In 1996, President Bill Clinton and congressional 
        Republicans enacted reforms that have moved families 
        off of Federal programs and enabled them to provide for 
        themselves.
          (3) According to the most recent projections, over 
        the next 10 years we will spend approximately $9.7 
        trillion on means-tested welfare programs.
          (4) Today, there are approximately 92 Federal 
        programs that provide benefits specifically to poor and 
        low-income Americans.
          (5) Taxpayers deserve clear and transparent 
        information on how well these programs are working, and 
        how much the Federal Government is spending on means-
        tested welfare.
          (6) It should be the goal of welfare programs to 
        encourage work and put people on a path to self-
        reliance.
  (b) Policy on Means-tested Welfare Programs.--It is the 
policy of this resolution that--
          (1) the welfare system should be reformed to give 
        states flexibility to implement and improve safety net 
        programs and that to be eligible for benefits, able 
        bodied adults without dependents should be required to 
        work or be preparing for work, including enrolling in 
        educational or job training programs, contributing 
        community service, or participating in a supervised job 
        search; and
          (2) the President's budget should disclose, in a 
        clear and transparent manner, the aggregate amount of 
        Federal welfare expenditures, as well as an estimate of 
        State and local spending for this purpose, over the 
        next ten years.

SEC. 303. POLICY STATEMENT ON BLOCK GRANTING MEDICAID.

  It is the policy of this resolution that Medicaid and the 
Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP) should be block 
granted to the States in a manner prescribed by the State 
Health Flexibility Act of 2013 (H.R. 567, 113th Congress).

SEC. 304. POLICY STATEMENT ON A CARBON TAX.

  It is the policy of this resolution that a carbon tax would 
be detrimental to American families and businesses, and is not 
in the best interest of the United States.

SEC. 305. POLICY STATEMENT ON THE USE OF OFFICIAL TIME BY FEDERAL 
                    EMPLOYEES FOR UNION ACTIVITIES.

  It is the policy of this resolution that, as called for in 
H.R. 107, the Federal Employee Accountability Act of 2013, 
Federal employees shall not use official time to conduct union 
activities.

SEC. 306. POLICY STATEMENT ON CREATION OF A COMMITTEE TO ELIMINATE 
                    DUPLICATION AND WASTE.

  It is the policy of this resolution that a new committee, 
styled after the post-World War II ``Byrd Committee'' shall be 
created to act on GAO's annual waste and duplication reports as 
well as Oversight and Government Reform Inspector General 
reports.

SEC. 307. POLICY STATEMENT ON FEDERAL FUNDING OF ABORTION.

  It is the policy of this resolution that no taxpayer dollars 
shall go to any entity that provides abortion services.

SEC. 308. POLICY STATEMENT ON READABLE LEGISLATION.

  It is the policy of this resolution that bills should be made 
more readable and for Members of Congress and more accessible 
to the public as called for in H.R. 760, the Readable 
Legislation Act of 2013.

SEC. 309. POLICY STATEMENT ON WORK REQUIREMENTS.

  It is the policy of this resolution that the work 
requirements in the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families 
block grant program should be preserved as called for in H.R. 
890, 113th Congress.

SEC. 310. POLICY STATEMENT ON ENERGY PRODUCTION.

  It is the policy of this resolution that the Arctic National 
Wildlife Refuge (ANWR) and currently unavailable areas of the 
Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) should be open for energy 
exploration and production. To ensure States' rights, states 
are given the option to withdrawal from leasing within certain 
areas of the OCS. Specifically, a State, through enactment of a 
State statute, may withdrawal from leasing from all or part of 
any area within 75 miles of that State's coast.

SEC. 311. POLICY STATEMENT ON REGULATION OF GREENHOUSE GASES BY THE 
                    ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY.

  It is the policy of this resolution that the Environmental 
Protection Agency should be prohibited from promulgating any 
regulation concerning, taking action relating to, or taking 
into consideration the emission of a greenhouse gas to address 
climate change.

SEC. 312. POLICY STATEMENT ON REFORMING THE FEDERAL BUDGET PROCESS.

  It is the policy of this resolution that the Federal budget 
process should be reformed to promote accountability, increase 
transparency, and make it easier to reduce spending.

SEC. 313. POLICY STATEMENT ON ECONOMIC GROWTH AND PUTTING AMERICANS 
                    BACK TO WORK.

  (a) Findings.--The House finds the following:
          (1) Although the United States economy technically 
        emerged from recession nearly five years ago, the 
        subsequent recovery has felt more like a malaise than a 
        rebound. Real gross domestic product (GDP) growth over 
        the past four years has averaged just over 2 percent, 
        well below the 3 percent trend rate of growth in the 
        United States.
          (2) The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) did a study 
        in late 2012 examining why the United States economy 
        was growing so slowly after the recession. They found, 
        among other things, that United States economic output 
        was growing at less than half of the typical rate 
        exhibited during other recoveries since World War II. 
        CBO said that about two-thirds of this ``growth gap'' 
        was due to a pronounced sluggishness in the growth of 
        potential GDP--particularly in potential employment 
        levels (such as people leaving the labor force) and the 
        growth in productivity (which is in turn related to 
        lower capital investment).
          (3) The prolonged economic sluggishness is 
        particularly troubling given the amount of fiscal and 
        monetary policy actions taken in recent years to 
        cushion the depth of the downturn and to spark higher 
        rates of growth and employment. In addition to the 
        large stimulus package passed in early 2009, many other 
        initiatives have been taken to boost growth, such as 
        the new homebuyer tax credit and the ``cash for 
        clunkers'' program. These stimulus efforts may have led 
        to various short term ``pops'' in activity but the 
        economy and job market has since reverted back to a 
        sub-par trend.
          (4) The unemployment rate has declined in recent 
        years, from a peak of nearly 10 percent in 2009-2010 to 
        6.7 percent in the latest month. However, a significant 
        chunk of this decline has been due to people leaving 
        the labor force (and therefore no longer being counted 
        as ``unemployed'') and not from a surge in employment. 
        The slow decline in the unemployment rate in recent 
        years has occurred alongside a steep decline in the 
        economy's labor force participation rate. The 
        participation rate stands at 63.2 percent, close to the 
        lowest level since 1978. The flipside of this is that 
        over 90 million Americans are now ``on the sidelines'' 
        and not in the labor force, representing a 10 million 
        increase since early 2009.
          (5) Real median household income declined for the 
        fifth consecutive year in 2012 (latest data available) 
        and, at just over $51,000, is currently at its lowest 
        level since 1995. Weak wage and income growth as a 
        result of a subpar labor market not only means lower 
        tax revenue coming in to the Treasury, it also means 
        higher government spending on income support programs.
          (6) A stronger economy is vital to lowering deficit 
        levels and eventually balancing the budget. According 
        to CBO, if annual real GDP growth is just 0.1 
        percentage point higher over the budget window, 
        deficits would be reduced by $311 billion.
          (7) This budget resolution therefore embraces pro-
        growth policies, such as fundamental tax reform, that 
        will help foster a stronger economy and more job 
        creation.
          (8) Reining in government spending and lowering 
        budget deficits has a positive long-term impact on the 
        economy and the budget. According to CBO, a significant 
        deficit reduction package (i.e. $4 trillion), would 
        boost longer-term economic output by 1.7 percent. Their 
        analysis concludes that deficit reduction creates long-
        term economic benefits because it increases the pool of 
        national savings and boosts investment, thereby raising 
        economic growth and job creation.
          (9) The greater economic output that stems from a 
        large deficit reduction package would have a sizeable 
        impact on the Federal budget. For instance, higher 
        output would lead to greater revenues through the 
        increase in taxable incomes. Lower interest rates, and 
        a reduction in the stock of debt, would lead to lower 
        government spending on net interest expenses.
  (b) Policy on Economic Growth and Job Creation.--
          (1) In general.--It is the policy of this resolution 
        to promote faster economic growth and job creation. By 
        putting the budget on a sustainable path, this 
        resolution ends the debt-fueled uncertainty holding 
        back job creators. Reforms to the tax code to put 
        American businesses and workers in a better position to 
        compete and thrive in the 21st century global economy. 
        This resolution targets the regulatory red tape and 
        cronyism that stack the deck in favor of special 
        interests. All of the reforms in this resolution serve 
        as means to the larger end of growing the economy and 
        expanding opportunity for all Americans.
          (2) JOBS act.--It is the policy of this resolution 
        that to create jobs, opportunity, and economic growth, 
        H.R. 4304, the Jumpstarting Opportunities with Bold 
        Solutions (JOBS) Act, should be enacted. This 
        legislation, introduced by the Republican Study 
        Committee, would unleash North American energy 
        production, reform labor laws, reduce the regulatory 
        burden, and increase access to capital.

SEC. 314. POLICY STATEMENT ON TAX REFORM.

  (a) Findings.--The House finds the following:
          (1) A world-class tax system should be simple, fair, 
        and promote (rather than impede) economic growth. The 
        United States tax code fails on all three counts - it 
        is notoriously complex, patently unfair, and highly 
        inefficient. The tax code's complexity distorts 
        decisions to work, save, and invest, which leads to 
        slower economic growth, lower wages, and less job 
        creation.
          (2) Over the past decade alone, there have been more 
        than 4,400 changes to the tax code, more than one per 
        day. Many of the major changes over the years have 
        involved carving out special preferences, exclusions, 
        or deductions for various activities or groups. These 
        loopholes add up to more than $1 trillion per year and 
        make the code unfair, inefficient, and highly complex.
          (3) The large amount of tax preferences that pervade 
        the code end up narrowing the tax base. A narrow tax 
        base, in turn, requires much higher tax rates to raise 
        a given amount of revenue.
          (4) It is estimated that American taxpayers end up 
        spending $160 billion and roughly 6 billion hours a 
        year complying with the tax code - a waste of time and 
        resources that could be used in more productive 
        activities.
          (5) Standard economic theory shows that high marginal 
        tax rates dampen the incentives to work, save, and 
        invest, which reduces economic output and job creation. 
        Lower economic output, in turn, mutes the intended 
        revenue gain from higher marginal tax rates.
          (6) Roughly half of United States active business 
        income and half of private sector employment are 
        derived from business entities (such as partnerships, S 
        corporations, and sole proprietorships) that are taxed 
        on a ``pass-through'' basis, meaning the income flows 
        through to the tax returns of the individual owners and 
        is taxed at the individual rate structure rather than 
        at the corporate rate. Small businesses, in particular, 
        tend to choose this form for Federal tax purposes, and 
        the top Federal rate on such small business income 
        reaches 44.6 percent. For these reasons, sound economic 
        policy requires lowering marginal rates on these pass-
        through entities.
          (7) The United States corporate income tax rate 
        (including Federal, State, and local taxes) sums to 
        just over 39 percent, the highest rate in the 
        industrialized world. Tax rates this high suppress 
        wages and discourage investment and job creation, 
        distort business activity, and put American businesses 
        at a competitive disadvantage with foreign competitors.
          (8) By deterring potential investment, the United 
        States corporate tax restrains economic growth and job 
        creation. The United States tax rate differential with 
        other countries also fosters a variety of complicated 
        multinational corporate behaviors intended to avoid the 
        tax, which have the effect of moving the tax base 
        offshore, destroying American jobs, and decreasing 
        corporate revenue.
          (9) The ``worldwide'' structure of United States 
        international taxation essentially taxes earnings of 
        United States firms twice, putting them at a 
        significant competitive disadvantage with competitors 
        with more competitive international tax systems.
          (10) Reforming the United States tax code to a more 
        competitive international system would boost the 
        competitiveness of United States companies operating 
        abroad and it would also greatly reduce tax avoidance.
          (11) The tax code imposes costs on American workers 
        through lower wages, on consumers in higher prices, and 
        on investors in diminished returns.
          (12) Revenues have averaged about 17.5 percent of the 
        economy throughout modern American history. Revenues 
        rise above this level under current law to 18.4 percent 
        of the economy by the end of the 10-year budget window.
          (13) Attempting to raise revenue through tax 
        increases to meet out-of-control spending would damage 
        the economy.
          (14) This resolution also rejects the idea of 
        instituting a carbon tax in the United States, which 
        some have offered as a ``new'' source of revenue. Such 
        a plan would damage the economy, cost jobs, and raise 
        prices on American consumers.
          (15) Closing tax loopholes to fund spending does not 
        constitute fundamental tax reform.
          (16) The goal of tax reform should be to curb or 
        eliminate loopholes and use those savings to lower tax 
        rates across the board--not to fund more wasteful 
        Government spending. Tax reform should be revenue-
        neutral and should not be an excuse to raise taxes on 
        the American people. Washington has a spending problem, 
        not a revenue problem.
  (b) Policy on Tax Reform.--It is the policy of this 
resolution that Congress should enact legislation that provides 
for a comprehensive reform of the United States tax code to 
promote economic growth, create American jobs, increase wages, 
and benefit American consumers, investors, and workers through 
revenue-neutral fundamental tax reform that provides for the 
following:
          (1) Aims for revenue neutrality (relative to the CBO 
        baseline revenue projection) based on a dynamic score 
        that takes into account macroeconomic effects.
          (2) Simplifies the individual rates from seven 
        brackets to two, with a top rate of 25 percent.
          (3) Simplifies the tax code by ensuring that fewer 
        Americans will be required to itemize their deductions.
          (4) Gives equal tax treatment to individual and 
        employer health care expenditures modeled on the 
        American Health Care Reform Act (H.R. 3121).
          (5) Eliminates the current Earned Income Tax Credit 
        that is given in a yearly lump-sum payment and replaces 
        it with a program that would allow workers to exempt a 
        portion of their payroll taxes every month.
          (6) Repeals the death tax or inheritance tax.
          (7) Reduces the rate of double taxation by lowering 
        the top corporate rate to 25 percent and setting a 
        maximum long-term capital gains tax rate at 15 percent.
          (8) Sets a maximum dividend tax rate at 15 percent.
          (9) Encourages (on net) investment and 
        entrepreneurial activity.
          (10) Moves to a competitive international system of 
        taxation.

SEC. 315. POLICY STATEMENT ON REPLACING THE PRESIDENT'S HEALTH CARE 
                    LAW.

  (a) Findings.--The House finds the following:
          (1) The President's health care law has failed to 
        reduce health care premiums as promised. Health care 
        premiums were supposed to decline by $2,500. Instead, 
        according to the 2013 Employer Health Benefits Survey, 
        health care premiums have increased by 5 percent for 
        individual plans and 4 percent for family since 2012. 
        Moreover, according to a report from the Energy and 
        Commerce Committee, premiums for individual market 
        plans may go up as much as 50 percent because of the 
        law.
          (2) The President pledged that Americans would be 
        able to keep their health care plan if they liked it. 
        But the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office now 
        estimates 2 million Americans with employment-based 
        health coverage will lose those plans.
          (3) Then-Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, said 
        that the President's health care law would create 4 
        million jobs over the life of the law and almost 
        400,000 jobs immediately. Instead, the Congressional 
        Budget Office estimates that the law will reduce full-
        time equivalent employment by about 2.0 million hours 
        in 2017 and 2.5 million hours in 2024, ``compared with 
        what would have occurred in the absence of the ACA.''.
          (4) The implementation of the law has been a failure. 
        The main website that Americans were supposed to use in 
        purchasing new coverage was broken for over a month. 
        Since the President's health care law was signed into 
        law, the Administration has announced 23 delays. The 
        President has also failed to submit any nominees to sit 
        on the Independent Payment Advisory Board, a panel of 
        bureaucrats that will cut Medicare by an additional 
        $12.1 billion over the next ten years, according to the 
        President's own budget.
          (5) The President's health care law should be 
        repealed and replaced with reforms that make affordable 
        and quality health care coverage available to all 
        Americans.
  (b) Policy on Replacing the President's Health Care Law.--It 
is the policy of this resolution that the President's health 
care law must not only be repealed, but also replaced by 
enacting H.R. 3121, the American Health Care Reform Act.

SEC. 316. POLICY STATEMENT ON MEDICARE.

  (a) Findings.--The House finds the following:
          (1) More than 50 million Americans depend on Medicare 
        for their health security.
          (2) The Medicare Trustees Report has repeatedly 
        recommended that Medicare's long-term financial 
        challenges be addressed soon. Each year without reform, 
        the financial condition of Medicare becomes more 
        precarious and the threat to those in or near 
        retirement becomes more pronounced. According to the 
        Congressional Budget Office--
                  (A) the Hospital Insurance Trust Fund will be 
                exhausted in 2026 and unable to pay scheduled 
                benefits; and
                  (B) Medicare spending is growing faster than 
                the economy and Medicare outlays are currently 
                rising at a rate of 6 percent per year over the 
                next ten years, and according to the 
                Congressional Budget Office's 2013 Long-Term 
                Budget Outlook, spending on Medicare is 
                projected to reach 5 percent of gross domestic 
                product (GDP) by 2040 and 9.4 percent of GDP by 
                2088.
          (3) The President's health care law created a new 
        Federal agency called the Independent Payment Advisory 
        Board (IPAB) empowered with unilateral authority to cut 
        Medicare spending. As a result of that law--
                  (A) IPAB will be tasked with keeping the 
                Medicare per capita growth below a Medicare per 
                capita target growth rate. Prior to 2018, the 
                target growth rate is based on the five-year 
                average of overall inflation and medical 
                inflation. Beginning in 2018, the target growth 
                rate will be the five-year average increase in 
                the nominal GDP plus one percentage point, 
                which the President has twice proposed to 
                reduce to GDP plus one-half percentage point;
                  (B) the fifteen unelected, unaccountable 
                bureaucrats of IPAB will make decisions that 
                will reduce seniors access to care;
                  (C) the nonpartisan Office of the Medicare 
                Chief Actuary estimates that the provider cuts 
                already contained in the Affordable Care Act 
                will force 15 percent of hospitals, skilled 
                nursing facilities, and home health agencies to 
                become unprofitable in 2019; and
                  (D) additional cuts from the IPAB board will 
                force even more health care providers to close 
                their doors, and the Board should be repealed.
          (4) Failing to address this problem will leave 
        millions of American seniors without adequate health 
        security and younger generations burdened with enormous 
        debt to pay for spending levels that cannot be 
        sustained.
  (b) Policy on Medicare Reform.--It is the policy of this 
resolution to protect those in or near retirement from any 
disruptions to their Medicare benefits and offer future 
beneficiaries the same health care options available to Members 
of Congress.
  (c) Assumptions.--This resolution assumes reform of the 
Medicare program such that:
          (1) Current Medicare benefits are preserved for those 
        in or near retirement.
          (2) For future generations, when they reach 
        eligibility, Medicare is reformed to provide a premium 
        support payment and a selection of guaranteed health 
        coverage options from which recipients can choose a 
        plan that best suits their needs.
          (3) Medicare will maintain traditional fee-for-
        service as an option.
          (4) Medicare will provide additional assistance for 
        lower-income beneficiaries and those with greater 
        health risks.
          (5) Medicare spending is put on a sustainable path 
        and the Medicare program becomes solvent over the long-
        term.

SEC. 317. POLICY STATEMENT ON SOCIAL SECURITY.

  (a) Findings.--The House finds the following:
          (1) More than 55 million retirees, individuals with 
        disabilities, and survivors depend on Social Security. 
        Since enactment, Social Security has served as a vital 
        leg on the ``three-legged stool'' of retirement 
        security, which includes employer provided pensions as 
        well as personal savings.
          (2) The Social Security Trustees Report has 
        repeatedly recommended that Social Security's long-term 
        financial challenges be addressed soon. Each year 
        without reform, the financial condition of Social 
        Security becomes more precarious and the threat to 
        seniors and those receiving Social Security disability 
        benefits becomes more pronounced:
                  (A) In 2016, the Disability Insurance Trust 
                Fund will be exhausted and program revenues 
                will be unable to pay scheduled benefits.
                  (B) In 2033, the combined Old-Age and 
                Survivors and Disability Trust Funds will be 
                exhausted, and program revenues will be unable 
                to pay scheduled benefits.
                  (C) With the exhaustion of the Trust Funds in 
                2033, benefits will be cut nearly 25 percent 
                across the board, devastating those currently 
                in or near retirement and those who rely on 
                Social Security the most.
          (3) The recession and continued low economic growth 
        have exacerbated the looming fiscal crisis facing 
        Social Security. The most recent CBO projections find 
        that Social Security will run cash deficits of $1.7 
        trillion over the next 10 years.
          (4) Lower-income Americans rely on Social Security 
        for a larger proportion of their retirement income. 
        Therefore, reforms should take into consideration the 
        need to protect lower-income Americans' retirement 
        security.
          (5) The Disability Insurance program provides an 
        essential income safety net for those with disabilities 
        and their families. According to the Congressional 
        Budget Office (CBO), between 1970 and 2012, the number 
        of people receiving disability benefits (both disabled 
        workers and their dependent family members) has 
        increased by over 300 percent from 2.7 million to over 
        10.9 million. This increase is not due strictly to 
        population growth or decreases in health. David Autor 
        and Mark Duggan have found that the increase in 
        individuals on disability does not reflect a decrease 
        in self-reported health. CBO attributes program growth 
        to changes in demographics, changes in the composition 
        of the labor force and compensation, as well as Federal 
        policies.
          (6) If this program is not reformed, families who 
        rely on the lifeline that disability benefits provide 
        will face benefit cuts of up to 25 percent in 2016, 
        devastating individuals who need assistance the most.
          (7) In the past, Social Security has been reformed on 
        a bipartisan basis, most notably by the ``Greenspan 
        Commission'' which helped to address Social Security 
        shortfalls for over a generation.
          (8) Americans deserve action by the President, the 
        House, and the Senate to preserve and strengthen Social 
        Security. It is critical that bipartisan action be 
        taken to address the looming insolvency of Social 
        Security. In this spirit, this resolution creates a 
        bipartisan opportunity to find solutions by requiring 
        policymakers to ensure that Social Security remains a 
        critical part of the safety net.
  (b) Policy on Social Security.--It is the policy of this 
resolution that Congress should work on a bipartisan basis to 
make Social Security sustainably solvent. This resolution 
assumes these reforms will include the following:
          (1) Adoption of a more accurate measure for 
        calculating cost of living adjustments.
          (2) Adoption of adjustments to the full retirement 
        age to reflect longevity.
  (c) Policy on Disability Insurance.--It is the policy of this 
resolution that Congress and the President should enact 
legislation on a bipartisan basis to reform the Disability 
Insurance program prior to its insolvency in 2016 and should 
not raid the Social Security retirement system without reforms 
to the Disability Insurance system. This resolutions assumes 
that reforms to the Disability Insurance program will include--
          (1) encouraging work;
          (2) updates of the eligibility rules;
          (3) reducing fraud and abuse; and
          (4) enactment of H.R. 1502, the Social Security 
        Disability Insurance and Unemployment Benefits Double 
        Dip Elimination Act, to prohibit individuals from 
        drawing benefits from both programs at the same time.

SEC. 318. POLICY STATEMENT ON HIGHER EDUCATION AND WORKFORCE 
                    DEVELOPMENT OPPORTUNITY.

  (a) Findings on Higher Education.--The House finds the 
following:
          (1) A well-educated workforce is critical to 
        economic, job, and wage growth.
          (2) 19.5 million students are enrolled in American 
        colleges and universities.
          (3) Over the last decade, tuition and fees have been 
        growing at an unsustainable rate. Between the 2002-2003 
        Academic Year and the 2012-2013 Academic Year--
                  (A) published tuition and fees for in-State 
                students at public four-year colleges and 
                universities increased at an average rate of 
                5.2 percent per year beyond the rate of general 
                inflation;
                  (B) published tuition and fees for in-State 
                students at public two-year colleges and 
                universities increased at an average rate of 
                3.9 percent per year beyond the rate of general 
                inflation; and
                  (C) published tuition and fees for in-State 
                students at private four-year colleges and 
                universities increased at an average rate of 
                2.4 percent per year beyond the rate of general 
                inflation.
          (4) Over that same period, Federal financial aid has 
        increased 105 percent.
          (5) This spending has failed to make college more 
        affordable.
          (6) In his 2012 State of the Union Address, President 
        Obama noted that, ``We can't just keep subsidizing 
        skyrocketing tuition; we'll run out of money.''.
          (7) American students are chasing ever-increasing 
        tuition with ever-increasing debt. According to the 
        Federal Reserve Bank of New York, student debt more 
        than quadrupled between 2003 and 2013, and now stands 
        at nearly $1.1 trillion. Student debt now has the 
        second largest balance after mortgage debt.
          (8) Students are carrying large debt loads and too 
        many fail to complete college or end up defaulting on 
        these loans due to their debt burden and a weak economy 
        and job market.
          (9) Based on estimates from the Congressional Budget 
        Office, the Pell Grant Program will face a fiscal 
        shortfall beginning in fiscal year 2016 and continuing 
        in each subsequent year in the current budget window.
          (10) Failing to address these problems will 
        jeopardize access and affordability to higher education 
        for America's young people.
  (b) Policy on Higher Education Affordability.--It is the 
policy of this resolution to address the root drivers of 
tuition inflation, by--
          (1) targeting Federal financial aid to those most in 
        need;
          (2) streamlining programs that provide aid to make 
        them more effective;
          (3) maintaining the maximum Pell grant award level at 
        $5,730 in each year of the budget window; and
          (4) removing regulatory barriers in higher education 
        that act to restrict flexibility and innovative 
        teaching, particularly as it relates to non-traditional 
        models such as online coursework and competency-based 
        learning.
  (c) Findings on Workforce Development.--The House finds the 
following:
          (1) Over ten million Americans are currently 
        unemployed.
          (2) Despite billions of dollars in spending, those 
        looking for work are stymied by a broken workforce 
        development system that fails to connect workers with 
        assistance and employers with trained personnel.
          (4) According to a 2011 Government Accountability 
        Office (GAO) report, in fiscal year 2009, the Federal 
        Government spent $18 billion across 9 agencies to 
        administer 47 Federal job training programs, almost all 
        of which overlapped with another program in terms of 
        offered services and targeted population.
          (5) Since the release of that GAO report, the 
        Education and Workforce Committee, which has done 
        extensive work in this area, has identified more than 
        50 programs.
          (3) Without changes, this flawed system will continue 
        to fail those looking for work or to improve their 
        skills, and jeopardize economic growth.
  (d) Policy on Workforce Development.--It is the policy of 
this resolution to address the failings in the current 
workforce development system, by--
          (1) streamlining and consolidating Federal job 
        training programs as advanced by the House-passed 
        Supporting Knowledge and Investing in Lifelong Skills 
        Act (SKILLS Act); and
          (2) empowering states with the flexibility to tailor 
        funding and programs to the specific needs of their 
        workforce, including the development of career 
        scholarships.

SEC. 319. POLICY STATEMENT ON DEFICIT REDUCTION THROUGH THE 
                    CANCELLATION OF UNOBLIGATED BALANCES.

  (a) Findings.--The House finds the following:
          (1) According to the most recent estimate from the 
        Office of Management and Budget, Federal agencies were 
        expected to hold $739 billion in unobligated balances 
        at the close of fiscal year 2014.
          (2) These funds represent direct and discretionary 
        spending made available by Congress that remains 
        available for expenditure beyond the fiscal year for 
        which they are provided.
          (3) In some cases, agencies are granted funding and 
        it remains available for obligation indefinitely.
          (4) The Congressional Budget and Impoundment Control 
        Act of 1974 requires the Office of Management and 
        Budget to make funds available to agencies for 
        obligation and prohibits the Administration from 
        withholding or cancelling unobligated funds unless 
        approved by an act of Congress.
          (5) Greater congressional oversight is required to 
        review and identify potential savings from unneeded 
        balances of funds.
  (b) Policy on Deficit Reduction Through the Cancellation of 
Unobligated Balances.--Congressional committees shall through 
their oversight activities identify and achieve savings through 
the cancellation or rescission of unobligated balances that 
neither abrogate contractual obligations of the Government nor 
reduce or disrupt Federal commitments under programs such as 
Social Security, veterans' affairs, national security, and 
Treasury authority to finance the national debt.
  (c) Deficit Reduction.--Congress, with the assistance of the 
Government Accountability Office, the Inspectors General, and 
other appropriate agencies should continue to make it a high 
priority to review unobligated balances and identify savings 
for deficit reduction.

SEC. 320. POLICY STATEMENT ON RESPONSIBLE STEWARDSHIP OF TAXPAYER 
                    DOLLARS.

  (a) Findings.--The House finds the following:
          (1) The budget for the House of Representatives is 
        $188 million less than it was when Republicans became 
        the majority in 2011.
          (2) The House of Representatives has achieved 
        significant savings by consolidating operations and 
        renegotiating contracts.
  (b) Policy on Responsible Stewardship of Taxpayer Dollars.--
It is the policy of this resolution that:
          (1) The House of Representatives must be a model for 
        the responsible stewardship of taxpayer resources and 
        therefore must identify any savings that can be 
        achieved through greater productivity and efficiency 
        gains in the operation and maintenance of House 
        services and resources like printing, conferences, 
        utilities, telecommunications, furniture, grounds 
        maintenance, postage, and rent. This should include a 
        review of policies and procedures for acquisition of 
        goods and services to eliminate any unnecessary 
        spending. The Committee on House Administration should 
        review the policies pertaining to the services provided 
        to Members and committees of the House, and should 
        identify ways to reduce any subsidies paid for the 
        operation of the House gym, barber shop, salon, and the 
        House dining room.
          (2) No taxpayer funds may be used to purchase first 
        class airfare or to lease corporate jets for Members of 
        Congress.
          (3) Retirement benefits for Members of Congress 
        should not include free, taxpayer-funded health care 
        for life.

SEC. 321. POLICY STATEMENT ON DEFICIT REDUCTION THROUGH THE REDUCTION 
                    OF UNNECESSARY AND WASTEFUL SPENDING.

  (a) Findings.--The House finds the following:
          (1) The Government Accountability Office (``GAO'') is 
        required by law to identify examples of waste, 
        duplication, and overlap in Federal programs, and has 
        so identified dozens of such examples.
          (2) In testimony before the Committee on Oversight 
        and Government Reform, the Comptroller General has 
        stated that addressing the identified waste, 
        duplication, and overlap in Federal programs ``could 
        potentially save tens of billions of dollars.''
          (3) In 2011, 2012, and 2013 the Government 
        Accountability Office issued reports showing excessive 
        duplication and redundancy in Federal programs 
        including--
                  (A) 209 Science, Technology, Engineering, and 
                Mathematics education programs in 13 different 
                Federal agencies at a cost of $3 billion 
                annually;
                  (B) 200 separate Department of Justice crime 
                prevention and victim services grant programs 
                with an annual cost of $3.9 billion in 2010;
                  (C) 20 different Federal entities administer 
                160 housing programs and other forms of Federal 
                assistance for housing with a total cost of 
                $170 billion in 2010;
                  (D) 17 separate Homeland Security 
                preparedness grant programs that spent $37 
                billion between fiscal year 2011 and 2012;
                  (E) 14 grant and loan programs, and 3 tax 
                benefits to reduce diesel emissions;
                  (F) 94 different initiatives run by 11 
                different agencies to encourage ``green 
                building'' in the private sector; and
                  (G) 23 agencies implemented approximately 670 
                renewable energy initiatives in fiscal year 
                2010 at a cost of nearly $15 billion.
          (4) The Federal Government spends about $80 billion 
        each year for approximately 800 information technology 
        investments. GAO has identified broad acquisition 
        failures, waste, and unnecessary duplication in the 
        Government's information technology infrastructure. 
        Experts have estimated that eliminating these problems 
        could save 25 percent - or $20 billion - of the 
        Government's annual information technology budget.
          (5) GAO has identified strategic sourcing as a 
        potential source of spending reductions. In 2011 GAO 
        estimated that saving 10 percent of the total or all 
        Federal procurement could generate over $50 billion in 
        savings annually.
          (6) Federal agencies reported an estimated $108 
        billion in improper payments in fiscal year 2012.
          (7) Under clause 2 of Rule XI of the Rules of the 
        House of Representatives, each standing committee must 
        hold at least one hearing during each 120 day period 
        following its establishment on waste, fraud, abuse, or 
        mismanagement in Government programs.
          (8) According to the Congressional Budget Office, by 
        fiscal year 2015, 32 laws will expire, possibly 
        resulting in $693 billion in unauthorized 
        appropriations. Timely reauthorizations of these laws 
        would ensure assessments of program justification and 
        effectiveness.
          (9) The findings resulting from congressional 
        oversight of Federal Government programs should result 
        in programmatic changes in both authorizing statutes 
        and program funding levels.
  (b) Policy on Deficit Reduction Through the Reduction of 
Unnecessary and Wasteful Spending.--Each authorizing committee 
annually shall include in its Views and Estimates letter 
required under section 301(d) of the Congressional Budget Act 
of 1974 recommendations to the Committee on the Budget of 
programs within the jurisdiction of such committee whose 
funding should be reduced or eliminated.

SEC. 322. POLICY STATEMENT ON UNAUTHORIZED SPENDING.

  It is the policy of this resolution that the committees of 
jurisdiction should review all unauthorized programs funded 
through annual appropriations to determine if the programs are 
operating efficiently and effectively. Committees should 
reauthorize those programs that in the committees' judgment 
should continue to receive funding.

SEC. 323. POLICY STATEMENT ON FEDERAL REGULATORY POLICY.

  (a) Findings.--The House finds the following:
          (1) Excessive regulation at the Federal level has 
        hurt job creation and dampened the economy, slowing our 
        recovery from the economic recession.
          (2) In the first two months of 2014 alone, the 
        Administration issued 13,166 pages of regulations 
        imposing more than $13 billion in compliance costs on 
        job creators and adding more than 16 million hours of 
        compliance paperwork.
          (3) The Small Business Administration estimates that 
        the total cost of regulations is as high as $1.75 
        trillion per year. Since 2009, the White House has 
        generated over $494 billion in regulatory activity, 
        with an additional $87.6 billion in regulatory costs 
        currently pending.
          (4) The Dodd-Frank financial services legislation 
        (Public Law 111-203) resulted in more than $17 billion 
        in compliance costs and saddled job creators with more 
        than 58 million hours of compliance paperwork.
          (5) Implementation of the Affordable Care Act to date 
        has added 132.9 million annual hours of compliance 
        paperwork, imposing $24.3 billion of compliance costs 
        on the private sector and an $8 billion cost burden on 
        the states.
          (6) The highest regulatory costs come from rules 
        issued by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA); 
        these regulations are primarily targeted at the coal 
        industry. In September 2013, the EPA proposed a rule 
        regulating greenhouse gas emissions from new coal-fired 
        power plants. The proposed standards are unachievable 
        with current commercially available technology, 
        resulting in a de-facto ban on new coal-fired power 
        plants. Additional regulations for existing coal plants 
        are expected in the summer of 2014.
          (7) Coal-fired power plants provide roughly forty 
        percent of the United States electricity at a low cost. 
        Unfairly targeting the coal industry with costly and 
        unachievable regulations will increase energy prices, 
        disproportionately disadvantaging energy-intensive 
        industries like manufacturing and construction, and 
        will make life more difficult for millions of low-
        income and middle class families already struggling to 
        pay their bills.
          (8) Three hundred and thirty coal units are being 
        retired or converted as a result of EPA regulations. 
        Combined with the de-facto prohibition on new plants, 
        these retirements and conversions may further increase 
        the cost of electricity.
          (9) A recent study by Purdue University estimates 
        that electricity prices in Indiana will rise 32 percent 
        by 2023, due in part to EPA regulations.
          (10) The Heritage Foundation recently found that a 
        phase out of coal would cost 600,000 jobs by the end of 
        2023, resulting in an aggregate gross domestic product 
        decrease of $2.23 trillion over the entire period and 
        reducing the income of a family of four by $1,200 per 
        year. Of these jobs, 330,000 will come from the 
        manufacturing sector, with California, Texas, Ohio, 
        Illinois, Pennsylvania, Michigan, New York, Indiana, 
        North Carolina, Wisconsin, and Georgia seeing the 
        highest job losses.
  (b) Policy on Federal Regulation.--It is the policy of this 
resolution that Congress should, in consultation with the 
public burdened by excessive regulation, enact legislation 
that--
          (1) seeks to promote economic growth and job creation 
        by eliminating unnecessary red tape and streamlining 
        and simplifying Federal regulations;
          (2) pursues a cost-effective approach to regulation, 
        without sacrificing environmental, health, safety 
        benefits or other benefits, rejecting the premise that 
        economic growth and environmental protection create an 
        either/or proposition;
          (3) ensures that regulations do not 
        disproportionately disadvantage low-income Americans 
        through a more rigorous cost-benefit analysis, which 
        also considers who will be most affected by regulations 
        and whether the harm caused is outweighed by the 
        potential harm prevented;
          (4) ensures that regulations are subject to an open 
        and transparent process, rely on sound and publicly 
        available scientific data, and that the data relied 
        upon for any particular regulation is provided to 
        Congress immediately upon request;
          (5) frees the many commonsense energy and water 
        projects currently trapped in complicated bureaucratic 
        approval processes;
          (6) maintains the benefits of landmark environmental, 
        health safety, and other statutes while scaling back 
        this administration's heavy-handed approach to 
        regulation, which has added $494 billion in mostly 
        ideological regulatory activity since 2009, much of 
        which flies in the face of these statutes' intended 
        purposes; and
          (7) seeks to promote a limited government, which will 
        unshackle our economy and create millions of new jobs, 
        providing our Nation with a strong and prosperous 
        future and expanding opportunities for the generations 
        to come.

SEC. 324. POLICY STATEMENT ON TRADE.

  (a) Findings.--The House finds the following:
          (1) Opening foreign markets to American exports is 
        vital to the United States economy and beneficial to 
        American workers and consumers. The Commerce Department 
        estimates that every $1 billion of United States 
        exports supports more than 5,000 jobs here at home.
          (2) A modern and competitive international tax system 
        would facilitate global commerce for United States 
        multinational companies and would encourage foreign 
        business investment and job creation in the United 
        States
          (3) The United States currently has an antiquated 
        system of international taxation whereby United States 
        multinationals operating abroad pay both the foreign-
        country tax and United States corporate taxes. They are 
        essentially taxed twice. This puts them at an obvious 
        competitive disadvantage.
          (4) The ability to defer United States taxes on their 
        foreign operations, which some erroneously refer to as 
        a ``tax loophole,'' cushions this disadvantage to a 
        certain extent. Eliminating or restricting this 
        provision (and others like it) would harm United States 
        competitiveness.
          (5) This budget resolution advocates fundamental tax 
        reform that would lower the United States corporate 
        rate, now the highest in the industrialized world, and 
        switch to a more competitive system of international 
        taxation. This would make the United States a much more 
        attractive place to invest and station business 
        activity and would chip away at the incentives for 
        United States companies to keep their profits overseas 
        (because the United States corporate rate is so high).
          (6) The status quo of the current tax code undermines 
        the competitiveness of United States businesses and 
        costs the United States economy investment and jobs.
          (7) Global trade and commerce is not a zero-sum game. 
        The idea that global expansion tends to ``hollow out'' 
        United States operations is incorrect. Foreign-
        affiliate activity tends to complement, not substitute 
        for, key parent activities in the United States such as 
        employment, worker compensation, and capital 
        investment. When United States headquartered 
        multinationals invest and expand operations abroad it 
        often leads to more jobs and economic growth at home.
          (8) American businesses and workers have shown that, 
        on a level playing field, they can excel and surpass 
        the international competition.
  (b) Policy on Trade.--It is the policy of this resolution to 
pursue international trade, global commerce, and a modern and 
competitive United States international tax system in order to 
promote job creation in the United States.

SEC. 325. NO BUDGET, NO PAY.

  It is the policy of this resolution that Congress should 
agree to a concurrent resolution on the budget every year 
pursuant to section 301 of the Congressional Budget Act of 
1974. If by April 15, a House of Congress has not agreed to a 
concurrent resolution on the budget, the payroll administrator 
of that House should carry out this policy in the same manner 
as the provisions of Public Law 113-3, the No Budget, No Pay 
Act of 2013, and place in an escrow account all compensation 
otherwise required to be made for Members of that House of 
Congress. Withheld compensation should be released to Members 
of that House of Congress the earlier of the day on which that 
House of Congress agrees to a concurrent resolution on the 
budget, pursuant to section 301 of the Congressional Budget Act 
of 1974, or the last day of that Congress.

SEC. 326. POLICY STATEMENT ON REFORM OF THE SUPPLEMENTAL NUTRITION 
                    ASSISTANCE PROGRAM.

  (a) SNAP.--It is the policy of the resolution that the 
Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program be reformed so that:
          (1) Nutrition assistance funds should be distributed 
        to the states as a block grant with funding subject to 
        the annual discretionary appropriations process.
          (2) Funds from the grant must be used by the states 
        to establish and maintain a work activation program for 
        able-bodied adults without dependents.
          (3) It is the goal of this proposal to move those in 
        need off of the assistance rolls and back into the 
        workforce and towards self-sufficiency.
          (4) In the House, the chair of the Committee on the 
        Budget is permitted to revise allocations, aggregates, 
        and other appropriate levels, including discretionary 
        limits, accordingly.
  (b) Assumptions.--This resolution assumes that, pending the 
enactment of reforms described in (a), the conversion of the 
Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program into a flexible State 
allotment tailored to meet each State's needs. Additionally, it 
assumes that more stringent work requirements and time limits 
apply under the program.

SEC. 327. POLICY STATEMENT ON TRANSPORTATION REFORM.

  It is the policy of this resolution that State and local 
officials are in a much better position to understand the needs 
of local commuters, not bureaucrats in Washington. Federal 
funding for transportation should be phased down and limited to 
core Federal duties, including the interstate highway system, 
transportation infrastructure on Federal land, responding to 
emergencies, and research. As the level of Federal 
responsibility for transportation is reduced, Congress should 
also concurrently reduce the Federal gas tax.

for the reauthorization of the Secure Rural Schools and 
Community Self Determination Act of 2000 (Public Law 106-393) 
by the amounts provided by that legislation for those purposes, 
if such legislation requires sustained yield timber harvests 
obviating the need for funding under Public Law 106-393 in the 
future and would not increase the deficit or direct spending 
for the period of fiscal years 2015 through 2019, or the period 
of fiscal years 2015 through 2024.

SEC. 409. DEFICIT-NEUTRAL RESERVE FUND FOR TRANSPORTATION REFORM.

  In the House, the chair of the Committee on the Budget may

  (a) Means-tested Direct Spending.--
          (1) For means-tested direct spending, the average 
        rate of growth in the total level of outlays during the 
        10-year period preceding fiscal year 2015 is 6.8 
        percent.
          (2) For means-tested direct spending, the estimated 
        average rate of growth in the total level of outlays 
        during the 10-year period beginning with fiscal year 
        2015 is 5.4 percent under current law.
          (3) The following reforms are proposed in this 
        concurrent resolution for means-tested direct spending:
                  (A) In 1996, a Republican Congress and a 
                Democratic president reformed welfare by 
                limiting the duration of benefits, giving 
                States more control over the program, and 
                helping recipients find work. In the five years 
                following passage, child-poverty rates fell, 
                welfare caseloads fell, and workers' wages 
                increased. This resolution applies the lessons 
                of welfare reform to both the Supplemental 
                Nutrition Assistance Program and Medicaid.
                  (B) For Medicaid, this resolution recommends 
                conversion from direct spending to a 
                discretionary program subject to appropriation. 
                Pending this reform, this resolution assumes 
                the conversion of the Federal share of Medicaid 
                spending into a flexible State allotment 
                tailored to meet each State's needs. Such a 
                reform would end the misguided one-size-fits-
                all approach that has tied the hands of State 
                governments. Instead, each State would have the 
                freedom and flexibility to tailor a Medicaid 
                program that fits the needs of its unique 
                population. Moreover, this resolution assumes 
                the repeal of the Medicaid expansions in the 
                President's health care law, relieving State 
                governments of its crippling one-size-fits-all 
                enrollment mandates.
                  (C) For the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance 
                Program, recommends conversion from direct 
                spending to a discretionary program subject to 
                appropriation. Pending this reform, this 
                resolution assumes the conversion of the 
                program into a flexible State allotment 
                tailored to meet each State's needs. The 
                allotment would increase based on the 
                Department of Agriculture Thrifty Food Plan 
                index and beneficiary growth. Such a reform 
                would provide incentives for States to ensure 
                dollars will go towards those who need them 
                most. Additionally, it requires that more 
                stringent work requirements and time limits 
                apply under the program.
  (b) Nonmeans-tested Direct Spending.--
          (1) For nonmeans-tested direct spending, the average 
        rate of growth in the total level of outlays during the 
        10-year period preceding fiscal year 2015 is 5.7 
        percent.
          (2) For nonmeans-tested direct spending, the 
        estimated average rate of growth in the total level of 
        outlays during the 10-year period beginning with fiscal 
        year 2015 is 5.4 percent under current law.
          (3) The following reforms are proposed in this 
        concurrent resolution for nonmeans-tested direct 
        spending:
                  (A) For Medicare, this resolution advances 
                policies to put seniors, not the Federal 
                Government, in control of their health care 
                decisions. Those in or near retirement will see 
                no changes, while future retirees would be 
                given a choice of private plans competing 
                alongside the traditional fee-for-service 
                Medicare program. Medicare would provide a 
                premium-support payment either to pay for or 
                offset the premium of the plan chosen by the 
                senior, depending on the plan's cost. The 
                Medicare premium-support payment would be 
                adjusted so that the sick would receive higher 
                payments if their conditions worsened; lower-
                income seniors would receive additional 
                assistance to help cover out-of-pocket costs; 
                and wealthier seniors would assume 
                responsibility for a greater share of their 
                premiums. Putting seniors in charge of how 
                their health care dollars are spent will force 
                providers to compete against each other on 
                price and quality. This market competition will 
                act as a real check on widespread waste and 
                skyrocketing health care costs.
                  (B) In keeping with a recommendation from the 
                National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility 
                and Reform, this resolution calls for Federal 
                employees--including Members of Congress and 
                congressional staff--to make greater 
                contributions toward their own retirement.
                              ----------

by the amounts provided, together with any savings from ending

SEC. 209. DEFICIT-NEUTRAL RESERVE FUND FOR EXTENSION OF EXPIRING HEALTH 
                    CARE PROVISIONS.

  The chairman of the House Committee on the Budget may revise 
the allocations, aggregates, and other appropriate levels in

conference report that extends expiring Medicare, Medicaid, or 
other health provisions, by the amounts provided in such

either of the following time periods: fiscal year 2014 to 
fiscal year 2019 or fiscal year 2014 to fiscal year 2024.

SEC. 210. DEFICIT-NEUTRAL RESERVE FUND FOR THE HEALTH CARE WORKFORCE.

SEC. 211. DEFICIT-NEUTRAL RESERVE FUND FOR INITIATIVES THAT BENEFIT 
                    CHILDREN.

  The chairman of the House Committee on the Budget may revise 
the allocations, aggregates, and other appropriate levels in 
this resolution for any bill, joint resolution, amendment, or 
conference report that improves the lives of children by the 
amounts provided in such measure if such measure would not

          (3) Changes to child support enforcement to encourage

        from non-custodial parents, including legislation that 
        results in a greater share of collected child support 
        reaching the child or encourages States to provide 
        access and visitation services to improve fathers' 
        relationships with their children. Such changes could 
        reflect efforts to ensure that States have the

        is owed to families and to allow them to pass 100 
        percent of support on to families without financial 
        penalty. When 100 percent of child support payments are 
        passed to the child, rather than to administrative 
        expenses, program integrity is improved and child 
        support participation increases.
          (4) Regular increases in funding for the Individuals 
        with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) to put the 
        Federal Government on a 10-year path to fulfill its

        expenditure for special education.

conference report that makes college more affordable and

outcomes and access for low- and moderate-income students; 
ensure continued full funding for Pell grants; or help 
borrowers lower and manage their student loan debt through 
refinancing and expanded repayment options, by the amounts

2014 to fiscal year 2019 or fiscal year 2014 to fiscal year 
2024.

SEC. 213. DEFICIT-NEUTRAL RESERVE FUND FOR A COMPETITIVE WORKFORCE.

periods: fiscal year 2014 to fiscal year 2019 or fiscal year 
2014 to fiscal year 2024.

SEC. 215. DEFICIT-NEUTRAL RESERVE FUND FOR FULL FUNDING OF THE LAND AND 
                    WATER CONSERVATION FUND.

the allocations, aggregates, and other appropriate levels in 
this resolution for any bill, joint resolution, amendment, or 
conference report that provides full funding for the Land and 
Water Conservation Fund by the amounts provided in such measure 
if such measure would not increase the deficit for either of 
the following time periods: fiscal year 2014 to fiscal year 
2019 or fiscal year 2014 to fiscal year 2024.

                    FUND.

  The chairman of the House Committee on the Budget may revise 
the allocations, aggregates, and other appropriate levels in

                TITLE III--ESTIMATES OF DIRECT SPENDING

SEC. 301. DIRECT SPENDING.

  (a) Means-Tested Direct Spending.--
          (1) For means-tested direct spending, the average 
        rate of growth in the total level of outlays during the 
        10-year period preceding fiscal year 2015 is 6.8 
        percent.
          (2) For means-tested direct spending, the estimated 
        average rate of growth in the total level of outlays 
        during the 10-year period beginning with fiscal year 
        2015 is 5.4 percent under current law.
          (3) The following reforms are proposed in this 
        concurrent resolution for means-tested direct spending: 
        The resolution rejects cuts to the social safety net 
        that lifts millions of people out of poverty. It 
        assumes extension of the tax credits from the American 
        Taxpayer Relief Act due to expire at the end of 2017. 
        These credits include an increase in refundability of 
        the child tax credit, relief for married earned income 
        tax credit filers, and a larger earned income tax 
        credit for larger families. It also assumes expansion 
        of the earned income tax credit for childless workers, 
        a group that has seen limited support from safety net 
        programs.
  (b) Nonmeans-Tested Direct Spending.--
          (1) For nonmeans-tested direct spending, the average 
        rate of growth in the total level of outlays during the 
        10-year period preceding fiscal year 2015 is 5.7 
        percent.
          (2) For nonmeans-tested direct spending, the 
        estimated average rate of growth in the total level of 
        outlays during the 10-year period beginning with fiscal 
        year 2015 is 5.4 percent under current law.
          (3) The following reforms are proposed in this 
        concurrent resolution for nonmeans-tested direct 
        spending: For Medicare, this budget rejects proposals 
        to end the Medicare guarantee and shift rising health 
        care costs onto seniors by replacing Medicare with 
        vouchers or premium support for the purchase of private 
        insurance. Such proposals will expose seniors and 
        persons with disabilities on fixed incomes to 
        unacceptable financial risks, and they will weaken the 
        traditional Medicare program. Instead, this budget 
        builds on the success of the Affordable Care Act, which 
        made significant strides in health care cost 
        containment and put into place a framework for 
        continuous innovation. This budget supports 
        comprehensive reforms to give physicians and other care 
        providers incentives to provide high-quality, 
        coordinated, efficient care, in a manner consistent 
        with the goals of fiscal sustainability. It makes no 
        changes that reduce benefits available to seniors and 
        individuals with disabilities in Medicare. In other 
        areas, the resolution assumes extension of emergency 
        unemployment compensation, additional funding for 
        surface transportation, a new initiative for early 
        childhood education, and extension of the American 
        Opportunity Tax Credit, which assists with higher 
        education expenses.

        authority and outlays resulting from that budget 
        authority for fiscal year 2015.
          (2) Unemployment insurance program integrity

  (a) Emergency Needs.--If any bill, joint resolution, 
amendment, or conference report makes appropriations for

                as described in section 3(4) (C) of the 
                Statutory Pay-As-You-Go Act of 2010.
          (2) If a bill, joint resolution, or amendment is 
        considered pursuant to a special order of the House 
        directing the Clerk to add as a new matter at the end 
        of such measure the provisions of a separate measure as 
        passed by the House, the provisions of such separate 
        measure as passed by the House shall be included in the 
        evaluation under paragraph (1) of the bill, joint 
        resolution, or amendment.
          (3)(A) Except as provided in subparagraph (B), the 
        evaluation under paragraph (1) shall exclude a 
        provision expressly designated as an emergency for 
        purposes of pay-as-you-go principles in the case of a 
        point of order under this clause against consideration 
        of--
                          (i) a bill or joint resolution;
                          (ii) an amendment made in order as 
                        original text by a special order of 
                        business;
                          (iii) a conference report; or
                          (iv) an amendment between the Houses.
                  (B) In the case of an amendment (other than 
                one specified in subparagraph (A)) to a bill or 
                joint resolution, the evaluation under 
                paragraph (1) shall give no cognizance to any 
                designation of emergency.
                  (C) If a bill, a joint resolution, an 
                amendment made in order as original text by a 
                special order of business, a conference report, 
                or an amendment between the Houses includes a 
                provision expressly designated as an emergency 
                for purposes of pay-as-you-go principles, the 
                Chair shall put the question of consideration 
                with respect thereto.

SEC. 407. EXERCISE OF RULEMAKING POWERS.

  The House adopts the provisions of this title--
          (1) as an exercise of the rulemaking power of the 
        House of Representatives and as such they shall be 
        considered as part of the rules of the House, and these 
        rules shall supersede other rules only to the extent 
        that they are inconsistent with other such rules; and
          (2) with full recognition of the constitutional right 
        of the House of Representatives to change those rules 
        at any time, in the same manner, and to the same extent 
        as in the case of any other rule of the House of 
        Representatives.

                            TITLE V--POLICY

SEC. 501. POLICY OF THE HOUSE ON JOBS: MAKE IT IN AMERICA.

  (a) Findings.--The House finds that--
          (1) the economy entered a deep recession in December 
        2007 that was worsened by a financial crisis in 2008 - 
        by January 2009, the private sector was shedding about 
        800,000 jobs per month;
          (2) actions by the President, Congress, and the 
        Federal Reserve helped stem the crisis, and job 
        creation resumed in 2010, with the economy creating 8.9 
        million private jobs over the past 49 consecutive 
        months;
          (3) as part of a ``Make it in America'' agenda, 
        United States manufacturing has been leading the 
        Nation's economic recovery as domestic manufacturers 
        regain their economic and competitive edge and a wave 
        of insourcing jobs from abroad begins;
          (4) despite the job gains already made, job growth 
        needs to accelerate and continue for an extended period 
        for the economy to fully recover from the recession; 
        and
          (5) job creation is vital to Nation building at home 
        and to deficit reduction - CBO has noted that if the 
        country were at full employment, the deficit would be 
        about half its current size.
  (b) Policy.--
          (1) In general.--It is the policy of this resolution 
        that Congress should pursue a ``Make it in America'' 
        agenda with a priority to consider and enact 
        legislation to help create jobs, remove incentives to 
        out-source jobs overseas and instead support incentives 
        that bring jobs back to the United States, and help 
        middle class families by increasing the minimum wage.
          (2) Jobs.--This resolution--
                  (A) provides funding to support President 
                Obama's four-year, $302 billion surface 
                transportation reauthorization proposal;
                  (B) provides $1 billion for the President's 
                proposal to establish a Veterans Job Corps; and
                  (C) establishes a reserve fund that would 
                allow for passage of additional job creation 
                measures, including further infrastructure 
                improvements and support for biomedical 
                research that both creates jobs and advances 
                scientific knowledge and health, or other 
                spending or revenue proposals.

SEC. 502. POLICY OF THE HOUSE ON SURFACE TRANSPORTATION.

  (a) Findings.--The House finds the following:
          (1) Supporting the President's four-year, $302 
        billion surface transportation reauthorization proposal 
        will sharpen America's global competitive edge in the 
        21st century by allowing infrastructure expansion and 
        modernization.
          (2) Many of our roads, bridges, and transit systems 
        are in disrepair, and fail to move as many goods and 
        people as the economy demands. The American Society of 
        Engineers gives the United States infrastructure an 
        overall grade of D+.
          (3) Deep cuts to our transportation funding over the 
        next 10 years will hurt families and businesses at a 
        time when we have major infrastructure needs and 
        workers ready to do the job.
          (4) Increasing transportation investments improves 
        our quality of life by building new ladders of 
        opportunity--improving our competitive edge, 
        facilitating American exports, creating new jobs and 
        increasing access to existing ones, and fostering 
        economic growth, while also providing critical safety 
        improvements and reduced commute times.
          (5) The highway trust fund provides critical funding 
        for repairing, expanding, and modernizing roads, 
        bridges, and transit systems, and according to recent 
        CBO projections, it is expected to become insolvent 
        this summer. This could force a halt to construction 
        projects, which would put 700,000 jobs at risk.
  (b) Policy.--It is the policy of the House to provide funding 
in support of the President's proposed four-year, $302 billion 
surface transportation reauthorization that prevents the 
imminent insolvency of the highway trust fund and increases 
investment in our highway and transit programs. Such an 
investment sharpens our competitive edge, increases access to 
jobs, reduces commute times, makes our highways and transit 
systems safer, facilitates American exports, creates jobs, and 
fosters economic growth.

SEC. 503. POLICY OF THE HOUSE ON TAX REFORM AND FAIRNESS FOR MIDDLE-
                    CLASS AMERICANS.

  (a) Findings.--The House finds that--
          (1) According to the United States Census Bureau, 
        American families lost ground during the 2000s as 
        median income slipped 4.9 percent in real terms between 
        2000 and 2009.
          (2) According to the Congressional Budget Office, 
        between 1979 and 2007, real after-tax incomes for the 
        top 1 percent of income earners grew 278 percent - or a 
        stunning $973,100 - per household. In contrast, real 
        after-tax incomes of the middle 20 percent of families 
        grew just 25 percent, and incomes of the poorest 20 
        percent increased by 16 percent.
          (3) Past Republican tax plans have made reducing 
        taxes for the wealthiest Americans the top priority. 
        The result has been legislation that increased deficits 
        while giving a disproportionate share of any tax cuts 
        to the wealthy.
          (4) Recent Republican tax plans, including this 
        year's House Republican Budget, have emphasized 
        reducing the top marginal rates to 25 percent. Analysis 
        by the non-partisan Tax Policy Center has shown that it 
        is impossible to achieve such a reduction and be 
        revenue-neutral without large reductions in tax 
        deductions and credits for middle-income taxpayers that 
        would lead to a net tax increase on those families.
          (5) Analyses of proposals to reduce top rates to 25 
        percent within a revenue-neutral tax reform plan 
        indicate that the plans would raise taxes on middle-
        class families with children by an average of at least 
        $2,000.
          (6) Such a tax increase would--
                  (A) make it even harder for working families 
                to make ends meet;
                  (B) cost the economy millions of jobs over 
                the coming years by reducing consumer spending, 
                which will greatly weaken economic growth; and
                  (C) further widen the income gap between the 
                wealthiest households and the middle class by 
                making the tax code more regressive.
          (7) The tax code contains numerous, wasteful tax 
        breaks for special interests.
          (8) these special tax breaks can greatly complicate 
        the effort to administer the code and the taxpayer's 
        ability to fully comply with its terms, while also 
        undermining our basic sense of fairness.
          (9) they can distort economic incentives for 
        businesses and consumers and encourage businesses to 
        ship American jobs and capital overseas for tax 
        purposes; in many cases, the revenues lost to various 
        tax expenditures can be put to better use for more 
        targeted initiatives.
  (b) Policy.--
          (1) This resolution would accommodate action to 
        simplify the tax code and eliminate special interest 
        tax breaks without increasing the tax burden on middle-
        class taxpayers.

SEC. 504. POLICY OF THE HOUSE ON INCREASING THE MINIMUM WAGE.

  (a) Findings.--The House finds that--
          (1) the minimum wage has not been increased since 
        2009;
          (2) the real value of the minimum wage today is less 
        than it was in 1956;
          (3) increasing the minimum wage to $10.10 per hour 
        would give a raise to about 28,000,000 workers;
          (4) increasing the minimum wage to $10.10 per hour 
        would lift about 1,000,000 Americans out of poverty;
          (5) minimum wage workers bring home an average of 50 
        percent of their family's total income;
          (6) a higher minimum wage would put more money in the 
        pockets of individuals who are likely to spend 
        additional income, which would help expand the economy 
        and create jobs;
          (7) in part because of this effect, recent studies 
        have indicated that increases in the minimum wage do 
        not adversely impact job creation as much as had been 
        previously thought, and that modest increases in the 
        minimum wage may actually create jobs;
          (8) the higher minimum wage is important to victims 
        of wage discrimination, who are more likely to find 
        themselves in low-paying jobs;
          (9) a higher minimum wage will reduce government 
        spending to provide assistance to minimum wage workers; 
        and
          (10) a higher minimum wage will benefit businesses by 
        increasing productivity, reducing absenteeism, and 
        reducing turnover.
  (b) Policy.--This resolution assumes action by the House of 
Representatives to raise the minimum wage to $10.10 per hour in 
three annual steps, as proposed in H.R. 1010, the Fair Minimum 
Wage Act of 2013.

SEC. 505. POLICY OF THE HOUSE ON IMMIGRATION REFORM.

  (a) Findings.--The House finds the following:
          (1) Fixing the country's broken immigration system 
        will mean a stronger economy and lower budget deficits.
          (2) The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) estimates 
        that enacting H.R. 15, the Border Security, Economic 
        Opportunity, and Immigration Modernization Act, will 
        reduce the deficit by $900 billion over the next two 
        decades, boost the economy by 5.4 percent, and increase 
        productivity by 1.0 percent.
          (3) The Social Security Actuary estimates that 
        immigration reform will add up to $300 billion to the 
        Social Security Trust Fund over the next decade and 
        will extend Social Security solvency by up to two 
        years.
          (4) The passage of H.R. 15 recognizes that the 
        primary tenets of its success depend on securing the 
        sovereignty of the United States of America and 
        establishing a coherent and just system for integrating 
        those who seek to join American society.
          (5) We have a right, and duty, to maintain and secure 
        our borders, and to keep our country safe and 
        prosperous. As a Nation founded, built and sustained by 
        immigrants we also have a responsibility to harness the 
        power of that tradition in a balanced way that secures 
        a more prosperous future for America.
          (6) We have always welcomed newcomers to the United 
        States and will continue to do so. But in order to 
        qualify for the honor and privilege of eventual 
        citizenship, our laws must be followed. The world 
        depends on America to be strong--economically, 
        militarily and ethically. The establishment of a 
        stable, just, and efficient immigration system only 
        supports those goals. As a Nation, we have the right 
        and responsibility to make our borders safe, to 
        establish clear and just rules for seeking citizenship, 
        to control the flow of legal immigration, and to 
        eliminate illegal immigration, which in some cases has 
        become a threat to our national security.
          (7) All parts of H.R. 15 are premised on the right 
        and need of the United States to achieve these goals, 
        and to protect its borders and maintain its 
        sovereignty.
  (b) Policy.--It is the policy of the House that the full 
House vote on comprehensive immigration reform--such as H.R. 
15, the Border Security, Economic Opportunity, and Immigration 
Modernization Act--to boost our economy, lower deficits, 
establish clear and just rules for citizenship, and secure our 
borders.

SEC. 506. POLICY OF THE HOUSE ON EXTENSION OF EMERGENCY UNEMPLOYMENT 
                    COMPENSATION.

  (a) Findings.--The House finds the following:
          (1) Since the expiration of emergency unemployment 
        compensation at the end of 2013, over 2,000,000 workers 
        and their families have lost benefits. Thousands more 
        are losing benefits each week.
          (2) The long-term unemployment rate at the time of 
        the expiration, and still today, was nearly twice as 
        high as it was at the expiration of any previous 
        extended unemployment benefits program.
          (3) Extending unemployment is good for the affected 
        workers and their families, and the economy as a whole. 
        The CBO has estimated that extending emergency 
        unemployment compensation will create 200,000 jobs by 
        the end of the year.
  (b) Policy.--It is the policy of this resolution that 
emergency unemployment compensation be extended for 1 year, 
retroactive to its expiration. The resolution assumes this 
would be accomplished in two steps with passage of the 
bipartisan Senate bill adding 5 months and future legislation 
completing the task. Over the full year, this will benefit 
5,000,000 Americans and their families as well as their 
communities and the Nation as a whole.

SEC. 507. POLICY OF THE HOUSE ON THE EARNED INCOME TAX CREDIT.

  (a) Findings.--The House finds the following:
          (1) The Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) has long been 
        considered one of our most effective anti-poverty 
        programs. It has generally enjoyed strong, bipartisan 
        support from Members of Congress and Presidents of each 
        party.
          (2) The EITC rewards work. Benefits are only 
        available to taxpayers with earned income. Encouraging 
        workforce participation among low earners is generally 
        thought to benefit the workers, their families, the 
        community and the overall economy.
          (3) Many of our income security programs target their 
        benefits towards children. The EITC is no different; 
        the credit for childless workers is significantly less 
        generous. As a result, low-income childless workers 
        often receive little support from our anti-poverty 
        efforts. Expanding the EITC for childless workers would 
        help close that gap and has been supported by anti-
        poverty experts with varying ideological perspectives, 
        consistent with the Credit's bipartisan history.
          (4) Expansion of the EITC can be viewed as a tax cut. 
        There is significant room to expand the EITC for 
        childless workers that would still leave those workers 
        as net taxpayers, when you include both the employee- 
        and employer-paid portion of their Medicare and Social 
        Security payroll taxes.
          (5) A tax cut for these workers is appropriate as 
        very low-income childless workers, because of the 
        limited tax benefits available to them, can, in some 
        circumstances actually fall below the poverty line as a 
        result of their tax burden.
  (b) Policy.--It is the policy of this resolution that the 
House should pass legislation to expand the Earned Income Tax 
Credit for childless workers. This expansion could take several 
forms, including larger phase-in and phase-out rates, higher 
thresholds for beginning the phase-out range, and extension of 
the credit to older and younger adults.

SEC. 508. POLICY OF THE HOUSE ON WOMEN'S EMPOWERMENT: WHEN WOMEN 
                    SUCCEED, AMERICA SUCCEEDS.

  (a) Findings.--The House finds the following:
          (1) Wage inequality still exists in this country. 
        Women make only 77 cents for every dollar earned by 
        men, and the pay gap for African American women and 
        Latinas is even larger.
          (2) Nearly two-thirds of minimum wage workers are 
        women, and the minimum wage has not kept up with 
        inflation over the last 45 years.
          (3) More than 40 million private sector workers in 
        this country - including more than 13 million working 
        women - are not able to take a paid sick day when they 
        are ill. Millions more lack paid sick time to care for 
        a sick child.
          (4) Nearly one-quarter of adults in the United States 
        (23 percent) report that they have lost a job or have 
        been threatened with job loss for taking time off due 
        to illness or to care for a sick child or relative.
          (5) Fully 89 percent of the United States workforce 
        does not have paid family leave through their 
        employers, and more than 60 percent of the workforce 
        does not have paid personal medical leave through an 
        employer-provided temporary disability program, which 
        some new mothers use.
  (b) Policy.--It is the policy of the House that Congress 
should make a positive difference in the lives of women, 
enacting measures to address economic equality and women's 
health and safety. To address economic fairness, Congress 
should enact the Paycheck Fairness Act, increase the minimum 
wage, support women entrepreneurs and small businesses, and 
support work and family balance through earned paid sick leave, 
and earned paid and expanded family and medical leave. To 
address health and safety concerns, Congress should increase 
funding for the prevention and treatment of women's health 
issues such as breast cancer and heart disease, support access 
to family planning, and enact measures to prevent and protect 
women from domestic violence.

SEC. 509. POLICY OF THE HOUSE ON A NATIONAL STRATEGY TO ERADICATE 
                    POVERTY AND INCREASE OPPORTUNITY.

  (a) Findings.--The House finds the following:
          (1) Access to opportunity should be the right of 
        every American.
          (2) Poverty has declined by more than one-third since 
        1967. More than 40,000,000 Americans are not in poverty 
        today because of programs and tax policies that 
        strengthen economic security and increase opportunity. 
        Continued Federal support is essential to build on 
        these gains.
          (3) Antipoverty programs have increasingly been 
        focused on encouraging and rewarding work for those who 
        are able. The programs can empower their beneficiaries 
        to rise to the middle class through job training, 
        educational assistance, adequate nutrition, housing and 
        health care.
          (4) Social Security has played a major role in 
        reducing poverty. Without it, the poverty rate in 2012 
        would have been 8.5 percentage points higher. Its 
        positive impact on older Americans is even starker, 
        lowering the poverty rate among this group by 40 
        percentage points.
          (5) Unemployment insurance benefits provide critical 
        support to millions of workers, who lost their jobs 
        through no fault of their own, and their families. 
        Without these benefits, 2,500,000 more people would 
        have lived in poverty in 2012.
          (6) The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program 
        alone lifts nearly 5,000,000 people out of poverty, 
        including over 2,000,000 children. It is particularly 
        effective in keeping children--over 1,000,000--out of 
        deep poverty (below half the poverty line). School 
        breakfast and lunch programs help keep children ready 
        to learn, allowing them to reach their full potential.
          (7) Medicaid improves health, access to health care 
        and financial security. Medicaid coverage lowers 
        infant, child, and adult mortality rates. Medicaid 
        coverage virtually eliminates catastrophic out-of-
        pocket medical expenditures, providing much needed 
        financial security and peace of mind.
          (8) The Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) and Child Tax 
        Credit (CTC) together lift over 9,000,000 people, 
        including 5,000,000 children, out of poverty. President 
        Ronald Reagan proposed the major EITC expansion in the 
        1986 Tax Reform Act, which he referred to as ``the best 
        antipoverty, the best pro-family, the best job creation 
        measure to come out of Congress''. Studies indicate 
        that children in families that receive the type of 
        income supports EITC and CTC offer do better at school 
        and have higher incomes as adults.
          (9) Despite our progress, there is still work to be 
        done. Nearly 50,000,000 Americans still live below the 
        poverty line. Parental income still has a major impact 
        on children's income after they become adults.
          (10) The minimum wage has not changed since 2007 and 
        is worth less today than it was in real terms at the 
        beginning of 1950. The Congressional Budget Office 
        estimates that an incremental increase in the minimum 
        wage to $10.10 an hour would lift 900,000 people out of 
        poverty.
          (11) In addition, some areas of the country have been 
        left behind. They face persistent high levels of 
        poverty and joblessness. Residents of these areas often 
        lack access to quality schools, affordable health care, 
        and adequate job opportunities.
  (b) Policy.--It is the policy of the House to support a goal 
of developing a national strategy to eliminate poverty, with 
the initial goal of cutting poverty in half in ten years, and 
to extend equitable access to economic opportunity to all 
Americans. The strategy must include a multi-pronged approach 
that would--
          (1) ensure a livable wage for workers, including 
        raising the minimum wage so that a full time worker 
        earns enough to be above the poverty line;
          (2) provide education and job training to make sure 
        workers have the skills to succeed;
          (3) provide supports for struggling families in 
        difficult economic times and while developing skills;
          (4) remove barriers and obstacles that prevent 
        individuals from taking advantage of economic and 
        educational opportunities; and
          (5) provide supports for the most vulnerable who are 
        not able to work: seniors, the severely disabled, and 
        children.
As the strategy is developed and implemented, Congress must 
work to protect low-income and middle-class Americans from the 
negative impacts of budget cuts on the critical domestic 
programs that help millions of struggling American families. 
The strategy should maximize the impact of antipoverty programs 
across Federal, State, and local governments. Improving the 
effective coordination and oversight across agencies and 
implementing a true unity of programs under a ``whole of 
government'' approach to shared goals and client-based outcomes 
will help to streamline access, improve service delivery, and 
strengthen and extend the reach of every Federal dollar to 
fight poverty. The plan should consider additional targeting of 
spending toward persistent poverty areas to revitalize these 
areas of pervasive historical poverty, unemployment, and 
general distress.

SEC. 510. POLICY OF THE HOUSE ON SOCIAL SECURITY REFORM THAT PROTECTS 
                    WORKERS AND RETIREES.

  (a) Findings.--The House finds that--
          (1) Social Security is America's most important 
        retirement resource, especially for seniors, because it 
        provides an income floor to keep them, their spouses 
        and their survivors out of poverty during retirement--
        benefits earned based on their past payroll 
        contributions;
          (2) in January 2013, 58,000,000 people relied on 
        Social Security;
          (3) 9 out of 10 individuals 65 and older received 
        Social Security benefits;
          (4) Social Security helps keep people out of poverty 
        and has lowered the poverty rate among seniors by 
        nearly 40 percentage points;
          (5) Social Security benefits are modest, with an 
        average annual benefit for retirees of about $15,000, 
        which is the majority of total retirement income for 
        more than half of all beneficiaries;
          (6) diverting workers' payroll contributions toward 
        private accounts undermines retirement security and the 
        social safety net by subjecting the workers' retirement 
        decisions and income to the whims of the stock market;
          (7) diverting trust fund payroll contributions toward 
        private accounts jeopardizes Social Security because 
        the program will not have the resources to pay full 
        benefits to current retirees; and
          (8) privatization increases Federal debt because the 
        Treasury will have to borrow additional funds from the 
        public to pay full benefits to current retirees.
  (b) Policy.--It is the policy of the House that Social 
Security should be strengthened for its own sake and not to 
achieve deficit reduction. Because privatization proposals are 
fiscally irresponsible and would put the retirement security of 
seniors at risk, any Social Security reform legislation shall 
reject partial or complete privatization of the program.

SEC. 511. POLICY OF THE HOUSE ON PROTECTING THE MEDICARE GUARANTEE FOR 
                    SENIORS.

  (a) Findings.--The House finds that--
          (1) senior citizens and persons with disabilities 
        highly value the Medicare program and rely on Medicare 
        to guarantee their health and financial security;
          (2) in 2013, 52,000,000 people relied on Medicare for 
        coverage of hospital stays, physician visits, 
        prescription drugs, and other necessary medical goods 
        and services;
          (3) the Medicare program has lower administrative 
        costs than private insurance, and Medicare program 
        costs per enrollee have grown at a slower rate than 
        private insurance for a given level of benefits;
          (4) people with Medicare already have the ability to 
        choose a private insurance plan within Medicare through 
        the Medicare Advantage option, yet 72 percent of 
        Medicare beneficiaries chose the traditional fee-for-
        service program instead of a private plan in 2013;
          (5) rising health care costs are not unique to 
        Medicare or other Federal health programs, they are 
        endemic to the entire health care system;
          (6) converting Medicare into a voucher for the 
        purchase of health insurance will merely force seniors 
        and individuals with disabilities to pay much higher 
        premiums if they want to use their voucher to purchase 
        traditional Medicare coverage;
          (7) a voucher system in which the voucher payment 
        fails to keep pace with growth in health costs would 
        expose seniors and persons with disabilities on fixed 
        incomes to unacceptable financial risks;
          (8) shifting more health care costs onto Medicare 
        beneficiaries would not reduce overall health care 
        costs, instead it would mean beneficiaries would face 
        higher premiums, eroding coverage, or both; and
          (9) versions of voucher policies that do not 
        immediately end the traditional Medicare program will 
        merely set it up for a death spiral as private plans 
        siphon off healthier and less expensive beneficiaries, 
        leaving the sickest beneficiaries in a program that 
        will wither away.
  (b) Policy.--It is the policy of the House that the Medicare 
guarantee for seniors and persons with disabilities should be 
preserved and strengthened, and that any legislation to end the 
Medicare guarantee, financially penalize people for choosing 
traditional Medicare, or shift rising health care costs onto 
seniors by replacing Medicare with vouchers or premium support 
for the purchase of health insurance, should be rejected.

SEC. 512. POLICY OF THE HOUSE ON AFFORDABLE HEALTH CARE COVERAGE FOR 
                    WORKING FAMILIES.

  (a) Findings.--The House finds that--
          (1) making health care coverage affordable and 
        accessible for all American families will improve 
        families' health and economic security, which will make 
        the economy stronger;
          (2) the Affordable Care Act will expand affordable 
        coverage to 25,000,000 people by the end of the decade, 
        and already, millions of Americans have health 
        insurance under this law - more than 7,000,000 
        individuals have signed up for private health insurance 
        through new health insurance Marketplaces, 3,000,000 
        young adults have been able to stay on their parent's 
        health insurance plan, and 3,000,000 people have new 
        Medicaid coverage;
          (3) the Affordable Care Act ensures the right to 
        equal treatment for people who have preexisting health 
        conditions and for women;
          (4) the Affordable Care Act ensures that health 
        insurance coverage will always include basic necessary 
        services such as prescription drugs, mental health 
        care, and maternity care and that insurance companies 
        cannot impose lifetime or annual limits on these 
        benefits;
          (5) the Affordable Care Act increases transparency in 
        health care, helping to reduce health care cost growth 
        by requiring transparency around hospital charges, 
        insurer cost-sharing, and kick-back payments from 
        pharmaceutical companies to physicians;
          (6) the Affordable Care Act reforms Federal health 
        entitlements by using nearly every health cost-
        containment provision experts recommend, including new 
        incentives to reward quality and coordination of care 
        rather than simply quantity of services provided, new 
        tools to crack down on fraud, and the elimination of 
        excessive taxpayer subsidies to private insurance 
        plans, and as a result will slow the projected annual 
        growth rate of national health expenditures by 0.3 
        percentage points after 2016, the essence of ``bending 
        the cost curve''; and
          (7) the Affordable Care Act will reduce the Federal 
        deficit by more than $1,000,000,000,000 over the next 
        20 years.
  (b) Policy.--It is the policy of the House that the law of 
the land should support making affordable health care coverage 
available to every American family, and therefore the 
Affordable Care Act should not be repealed.

SEC. 513. POLICY OF THE HOUSE ON MEDICAID.

  (a) Findings.--The House finds that--
          (1) Medicaid is a central component of the Nation's 
        health care safety net, providing health coverage to 
        60,000,000 Americans, including 1 in 3 children;
          (2) Medicaid improves health outcomes, access to 
        health services, and financial security;
          (3) senior citizens and people with disabilities 
        account for two-thirds of Medicaid program spending and 
        consequently would be at particular risk of losing 
        access to important health care assistance under any 
        policy to sever the link between Medicaid funding and 
        the actual costs of providing services to the currently 
        eligible Medicaid population;
          (4) Medicaid is the primary payer for long-term care 
        services in the United States, providing a critical 
        health care safety net for senior citizens and people 
        with disabilities facing significant costs for long-
        term care; and
          (5) at least 70 percent of people over age 65 will 
        likely need long-term care services at some point in 
        their lives.
  (b) Policy.--It is the policy of the House that the important 
health care safety net for children, senior citizens, people 
with disabilities, and other vulnerable Americans provided by 
Medicaid should be preserved and should not be dismantled by 
converting Medicaid into a block grant, per capita cap, or 
other financing arrangement that would limit Federal 
contributions and render the program incapable of responding to 
increased need that may result from trends in demographics or 
health care costs or from economic conditions.

SEC. 514. POLICY OF THE HOUSE ON NATIONAL SECURITY.

  (a) Findings.--The House finds that--
          (1) we must continue to support a strong military 
        that is second to none and the size and the structure 
        of our military have to be driven by a strategy;
          (2) those who serve in uniform are our most important 
        security resource and the Administration and Congress 
        shall continue to provide the support they need to 
        successfully carry out the missions the country gives 
        them;
          (3) a growing economy is the foundation of our 
        security and enables the country to provide the 
        resources for a strong military, sound homeland 
        security agencies, and effective diplomacy and 
        international development;
          (4) the Nation's projected long-term debt could have 
        serious consequences for our economy and security, and 
        that more efficient military spending has to be part of 
        an overall plan that effectively deals with this 
        problem;
          (5) the bipartisan National Commission on Fiscal 
        Responsibility and Reform and the bipartisan Rivlin-
        Domenici Debt Reduction Task Force concluded that a 
        serious and balanced deficit reduction plan must put 
        national security programs on the table;
          (6) former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff 
        Admiral Mike Mullen argued that the permissive budget 
        environment over the last decade, a period when defense 
        spending increased by hundreds of billions of dollars, 
        had allowed the Pentagon to avoid prioritizing;
          (7) reining in wasteful spending at the Nation's 
        security agencies, including the Department of 
        Defense--the last department still unable to pass an 
        audit--such as the elimination of duplicative programs 
        that have been identified by the Government 
        Accountability Office needs to continue as a priority;
          (8) effective implementation of weapons acquisition 
        reforms at the Department of Defense can help control 
        excessive cost growth in the development of new weapons 
        systems and help ensure that weapons systems are 
        delivered on time and in adequate quantities to equip 
        our servicemen and servicewomen;
          (9) the Department of Defense should continue to 
        review defense plans and requirements to ensure that 
        weapons developed to counter Cold War-era threats are 
        not redundant and are applicable to 21st century 
        threats, which should include, with the participation 
        of the National Nuclear Security Administration, 
        examination of requirements for the nuclear weapons 
        stockpile, nuclear weapons delivery systems, and 
        nuclear weapons and infrastructure modernization;
          (10) weapons technologies should be proven to work 
        through adequate testing before advancing them to the 
        production phase of the acquisition process;
          (11) the Pentagon's operation and maintenance budget 
        has grown for decades between 2.5 percent and 3.0 
        percent above inflation each year on a per service 
        member basis, and it is imperative that unsustainable 
        cost growth be controlled in this area;
          (12) nearly all of the increase in the Federal 
        civilian workforce from 2001 to 2013 is due to 
        increases at security-related agencies--Department of 
        Defense, Department of Homeland Security, Department of 
        Veterans Affairs, and Department of Justice--and the 
        increase, in part, represents a transition to ensure 
        civil servants, as opposed to private contractors, are 
        performing inherently governmental work and an increase 
        to a long-depleted acquisition and auditing workforce 
        at the Pentagon to ensure effective management of 
        weapons systems programs, to eliminate the use of 
        contractors to oversee other contractors, and to 
        prevent waste, fraud, and abuse;
          (13) proposals to implement an indiscriminate 10 
        percent across-the-board cut to the Federal civilian 
        workforce would adversely affect security agencies, 
        leaving them unable to manage their total workforce, 
        which includes contractors, and their operations in a 
        cost-effective manner; and
          (14) cooperative threat reduction and other 
        nonproliferation programs (securing ``loose nukes'' and 
        other materials used in weapons of mass destruction), 
        which were highlighted as high priorities by the 9/11 
        Commission, need to be funded at a level that is 
        commensurate with the evolving threat.
  (b) Policy.--It is the policy of the House that--
          (1) the sequester required by the Budget Control Act 
        of 2011 for fiscal years 2016 through 2021 should be 
        rescinded and replaced by a deficit reduction plan that 
        is balanced, that makes smart spending cuts, that 
        requires everyone to pay their fair share, and that 
        takes into account a comprehensive national security 
        strategy that includes careful consideration of 
        international, defense, homeland security, and law 
        enforcement programs; and
          (2) savings can be achieved from the national defense 
        budget without compromising our security through 
        greater emphasis on eliminating duplicative and 
        wasteful programs, reforming the acquisition process, 
        identifying and constraining unsustainable operating 
        costs, and through careful analysis of our national 
        security needs.

SEC. 515. POLICY OF THE HOUSE ON CLIMATE CHANGE SCIENCE.

  (a) Findings.--The House finds the following:
          (1) The United States Government Accountability 
        Office described climate change as, ``a complex, 
        crosscutting issue that poses risks to many 
        environmental and economic systems--including 
        agriculture, infrastructure, ecosystems, and human 
        health--and presents a significant financial risk to 
        the Federal Government''.
          (2) The United States Academy of Sciences and the 
        British Royal Society reported, ``It is now more 
        certain than ever, based on many lines of evidence, 
        that humans are changing Earth's climate. The 
        atmosphere and oceans have warmed, accompanied by sea-
        level rise, a strong decline in Arctic sea ice, and 
        other climate-related changes''.
          (3) The United Nations' Intergovernmental Panel on 
        Climate Change concluded the effects of climate change 
        are occurring worldwide, ``Observed impacts of climate 
        change have already affected agriculture, human health, 
        ecosystems on land and in the oceans, water supplies, 
        and some people's livelihoods''.
          (4) The United States National Research Council's 
        National Climate Assessment and Development Advisory 
        Committee found climate change affects, ``human health, 
        water supply, agriculture, transportation, energy, and 
        many other aspects of society''.
  (b) Policy.--It is the policy of the House that climate 
change presents a significant financial risk to the Federal 
Government. The scientific community has reached a consensus 
regarding climate change science, which provides critical 
information to preserve economic and environmental systems 
throughout the world.

SEC. 516. POLICY OF THE HOUSE ON INVESTMENTS IN EARLY CHILDHOOD 
                    EDUCATION.

  (a) Findings.--The House finds the following:
          (1) Investments in early education are among the best 
        investments we can make for children, families, and the 
        economy.
          (2) Investments in early childhood benefit the 
        economy as a whole, generating at least $7 in return 
        for every $1 invested by lowering the need for spending 
        on other services--such as remedial education, grade 
        repetition, and special education--and increasing 
        productivity and earnings for those children as adults.
          (3) Children who receive high-quality early education 
        benefit directly in both the short term and the long 
        term. They have better educational outcomes, stronger 
        job earnings, and lower crime and delinquency rates.
          (4) Unfortunately, only 3 out of every 10 4-year-olds 
        are enrolled in high-quality early childhood education 
        programs in the United States. This low level of 
        participation ranks the United States 28th out of 38 
        countries in the Organization of Economic Cooperation 
        and Development for the share of 4-year-olds enrolled 
        in early childhood education.
          (5) In particular, children from low-income families 
        are less likely to have access to high-quality, 
        affordable preschool programs that will prepare them 
        for kindergarten. By third grade, children from low-
        income families who are not reading at grade level are 
        six times less likely to graduate from high school than 
        students who are proficient.
  (b) Policy.--This resolution provides for enactment of a $76 
billion, 10-year investment to provide access to high-quality 
early education for all 4-year-olds. Early education programs 
must meet quality benchmarks that are linked to better outcomes 
for children, including a rigorous curriculum tied to State-
level standards, qualified teachers, small class sizes, and 
effective evaluation and review of programs.

SEC. 517. POLICY OF THE HOUSE ON TAKING A BALANCED APPROACH TO DEFICIT 
                    REDUCTION.

  (a) Findings.--The House finds the following:
          (1) Since 2010, the Congress has enacted several 
        major measures to reduce the deficit. Most of the 
        savings come from cuts to spending. Revenues represent 
        less than one-quarter of total savings achieved.
          (2) Allowing implementation of the remaining spending 
        sequester will damage our national security, critical 
        infrastructure, and other important investments.
          (3) Every bipartisan commission has recommended, and 
        the majority of Americans agree, that we should take a 
        balanced, bipartisan approach to reducing the deficit 
        that addresses both revenue and spending.
  (b) Policy.--It is the policy of the House that Congress 
should develop a balanced plan to address the Nation's long-
term fiscal imbalance. The plan should--
          (1) prevent job loss and economic drag in the near 
        term as the economy heals;
          (2) increase revenues without increasing the tax 
        burden on middle-income Americans; and
          (3) decrease spending through greater efficiencies 
        within the Government and improving incentives for 
        service providers while maintaining the Medicare 
        guarantee, protecting Social Security and a strong 
        social safety net, and making strategic investments in 
        education, science, research, and critical 
        infrastructure necessary to compete in the global 
        economy.

SEC. 518. POLICY STATEMENT ON DEFICIT REDUCTION THROUGH THE REDUCTION 
                    OF UNNECESSARY AND WASTEFUL SPENDING.

  (a) Findings.--The House finds the following:
          (1) The Government Accountability Office (``GAO'') is 
        required by law to identify examples of waste, 
        duplication, and overlap in Federal programs, and has 
        so identified dozens of such examples.
          (2) In testimony before the Committee on Oversight 
        and Government Reform, the Comptroller General has 
        stated that addressing the identified waste, 
        duplication, and overlap in Federal programs ``could 
        potentially save tens of billions of dollars''.
          (3) The Federal Government spends about $80 billion 
        each year for information technology. GAO has 
        identified opportunities for savings and improved 
        efficiencies in the Government's information technology 
        infrastructure.
          (4) Federal agencies reported an estimated $108 
        billion in improper payments in fiscal year 2012.
          (5) Under clause 2 of Rule XI of the Rules of the 
        House of Representatives, each standing committee must 
        hold at least one hearing during each 120 day period 
        following its establishment on waste, fraud, abuse, or 
        mismanagement in Government programs.
          (6) According to the Congressional Budget Office, by 
        fiscal year 2015, 32 laws will expire. Timely 
        reauthorizations of these laws would ensure assessments 
        of program justification and effectiveness.
          (7) The findings resulting from congressional 
        oversight of Federal Government programs may result in 
        programmatic changes in both authorizing statutes and 
        program funding levels.
  (b) Policy Statement on Deficit Reduction Through the 
Reduction of Unnecessary and Wasteful Spending.--Each 
authorizing committee annually shall include in its Views and 
Estimates letter required under section 301(d) of the 
Congressional Budget Act of 1974 recommendations to the 
Committee on the Budget of programs within the jurisdiction of 
such committee whose funding should be changed.

SEC. 519. POLICY OF THE HOUSE ON THE USE OF TAXPAYER FUNDS.

  It is the policy of this resolution that the House should 
lead by example and identify any savings that can be achieved 
through greater productivity and efficiency gains in the 
operation and maintenance of House services and resources like 
printing, conferences, utilities, telecommunications, 
furniture, grounds maintenance, postage, and rent. This should 
include a review of policies and procedures for acquisition of 
goods and services to eliminate any unnecessary spending. The 
Committee on House Administration shall review the policies 
pertaining to the services provided to Members of Congress and 
House Committees, and shall identify ways to reduce any 
subsidies paid for the operation of the House gym, Barbershop, 
Salon, and the House dining room. Further, it is the policy of 
this resolution that no taxpayer funds may be used to purchase 
first class airfare or to lease corporate jets for Members of 
Congress.
