Press Release

WASHINGTON, DC—Congressman Mario Diaz-Balart (R-FL), a member of the House Budget Committee, made the following statement in support of President Bush’s economic growth package:

“Today President Bush laid out a strong foundation of economic principles for the stimulus package our country needs. 

It is critical that we continue to provide tax incentives to the American taxpayer, so that they can keep more of their hard-earned money.  At the same time, we must encourage investment by also providing tax relief to those who create jobs. 

I am a strong believer that tax incentives will inject the economy with a much needed boost.

As a member of the House Budget Committee, I keep a close eye on economic developments; and I look forward to working with my colleagues in a bipartisan way to find responsible and effective stimulus that will have a positive economic effect both in the short and long run.”
