Washington, D.C.- Congressman Francis Rooney released the following statement regarding his vote against today’s “cromnibus” spending bill.

 

Congressman Rooney stated, “Out of control spending in Washington must stop and the swamp culture of “going along to get along” must change. Today’s ‘cromnibus’ bill is yet another example of fiscally irresponsible taxpayer abuse, failing to solve the underlying spending problems plaguing our federal government. Congress cannot keep ignoring the voice of the American people by increasing the deficit - serious reforms and good governance measures like a balanced budget amendment and term limits would make a difference.”

 

Background: The spending bill -

  • Included $10.7 billion more in spending then the Trump Administration requested
  • Provides no funding for increased border security
  • Fails to protect the sanctity of life
  • Fails to end catch and release policies
  • Uses budget gimmicks to increase spending above previously capped levels
