President's Fiscal Year 2014 Budget, Hearing Before the Committee on Finance, United States Senate, One Hundred Thirteenth Congress, First Session, April 11, 2013   [open pdf - 2MB]

This is the April 11, 2013 hearing on "President's Fiscal Year 2014 Budget" held before the U.S. Senate Committee on Finance. From the opening statement of Max Baucus: "Alexander Hamilton once said, ''The necessities of a nation in every stage of its existence will be found at least equal to its resources.'' In 1790, when Hamilton was appointed America's first Treasury Secretary, he set out to build our young Nation's financial system and pay down its debt. As Hamilton did this, he submitted the first budget to Congress and put the United States on track to be a thriving nation. Today, more than 2 centuries later, we meet to hear from our new Treasury Secretary, Jack Lew, about this year's budget and the administration's plans to meet the necessities of our Nation. The budget must be a reflection of our priorities, more than just numbers on a page, and should serve as a roadmap, guiding our Nation on a fiscally sustainable path. We must cut our debt, also invest in and protect our priorities, and create new jobs." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of Jacob J. Lew.
