Graves On Getting House GOP Leadership On Board With Cut, Cap, and Balance:

We've been working long and hard on the proposal for many weeks. We hear a lot of frameworks and deals out there, but this is only plan that’s been out there for the American people to see, to be engaged in.  The grassroots are behind it. I think it has just taken weeks for that grassroots movement to develop and to see the president, number one, has no plan, the senate has no plan. The democrats have no plan whatsoever. This is only plan out there. It’s a historic vote tomorrow, and this is going to be an opportunity, right now, tomorrow as we see the American people have the opportunity to witness whether or not their congressman is serious about getting this debt crisis under control or not.

Graves On If Cut, Cap, Balance will Pass The House and Senate:

This is a very serious proposal. Like I said, it’s the only plan out there. We're very confident it’s going to move through the House. We’re going to encourage everyone to engage with their senators across the nation and let them know how important it is. It’s common sense. You're cutting the deficit now. You're capping the federal government and saying it can only grow so big and has to be tied to the gross domestic product. And then a balanced budget amendment.It’s going to be a great day for America tomorrow as we debate this and we expose those who are truly are about rhetoric and their political posturing and those who are serious about getting this nation back on track.
