The president recently put forward a budget that not only fails to address the serious financial challenges facing our nation but also continues to add to our nation's debt.

Senate Republicans are committed to reducing the cost of health care, cutting spending, and creating an environment where businesses can grow and create jobs.
Since the day Obamacare was signed into law, Senate Republicans have pledged to work to repeal and replace it with common-sense reforms. Today, they took the first step to do just that.
