GOP offer response to infrastructure bill and overspending |


From Senator Toomey:

Washington, DC — US Senator Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) Issued the following statement after voting against an ongoing resolution that included substantial, uncompensated and unrelated spending. The legislation also re-authorized several programs without the reforms they need to remain viable: “The legislation reviewed today included significant funding to keep our government open, provide disaster relief and support Afghan refugees. Unfortunately, as is often the case when the Senate views a bill perceived to be “for passage”, the opportunity has been taken to add billions to our deficit for purposes that are only loosely related to recent disasters and no to remote emergencies. Other provisions will exacerbate the longstanding financial difficulties of the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) by simply extending operations again without considering reform. Someday Congress might start budgeting honestly and stop putting off tough decisions about programs like NFIP, but that wasn’t the day.

US Congressman Fred Keller (R-12e, Kreamer, Pa.) Made these remarks on September 21 regarding the bills under consideration:

“Instead of letting the legislative process run with substantive discussions of responsible budgeting… President Pelosi is trying to disguise a vote for the Democrats’ $ 3.5 trillion socialist spending as responsible government funding, but the American people do not is not fooled. We must curb Washington’s unnecessary spending and tackle our country’s growing national debt; this bad governance of the majority party runs counter to these objectives.
