    Key Vote 1: On the Amendment: Paul Amendment to the FY 2017 Budget Resolution

    While serving as the vehicle to begin the process of repealing ObamaCare, as currently written, S.Con.Res. 3 would increase budget deficits by $7.919 trillion between FY 2017 and FY 2026 and add nearly $9.01 trillion in publicly held debt. It’s beyond comprehension, after seeing more than $8.1 trillion added public’s share of the national debt since on President Barack Obama’s watch, why Congress would pass a budget resolution that doesn’t show any measure of fiscal restraint. Introduced by Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), this amendment freezes on-budget federal spending at the FY 2017 level, $3.265 trillion, between FY 2018 through FY 2026. The amendment would bring the budget into balance by FY 2024. The resolution does nothing to adversely affect ObamaCare repeal.
