From the office of U.S. Rep Andy Harris (MD-1):
Washington, D.C. – Today, Rep. Andy Harris voted against the most recent Continuing Resolution (C.R.), the budget for the remainder of the fiscal year. The House worked on this legislation because the previous Congress was the first in history not to pass a budget. This most recent C.R. continues federal spending at unsustainable levels.
“I thank Speaker Boehner for his leadership and efforts to reduce spending, but because President Obama and Senate Majority Leader refuse to honestly and seriously confront Washington’s spending addiction, this budget just doesn’t go far enough to build an environment for long-term economic growth and job creation.” said Rep. Andy Harris.
The $1.05 trillion discretionary spending level this year will mark only the third time in United States history that the federal government will spend in excess of $1 trillion on discretionary spending.
