Steve WomackU.S. Rep. Steve Womack, R-Rogers, said Congress cannot possibly balance the budget without cutting nondiscretionary spending.

 

Nondiscretionary spending is primarily consumed by Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security and accounts for roughly two-thirds of annual spending by the federal government.

 

“When Paul Ryan (a U.S. representative from Wisconsin) said in his 2012 budget presentation that you’ve got to get into the entitlement spending if you’re going to appreciably change the fiscal trajectory of this country, he was right,” Womack said. “Don’t shoot the messenger, it’s a fact.”
