WALORSKI STATEMENT ON H.R. 2775

Oct 17, 2013
Press Release

WASHINGTON, D.C.- Congresswoman Jackie Walorski released the following statement after the House passed H.R. 2775, the Continuing Appropriations Act, 2014:

“As I have said before, I do not support defaulting on our nation’s debt.  Tonight, I am glad that a deal was reached to temporarily avoid default and reopen the government, allowing more time for the House and Senate to reach a long-term compromise. However, without any spending cuts or budget reforms aimed at getting our fiscal house in order, I could not support this plan.

“Moving forward, I will continue to work across the aisle on bipartisan solutions to balance the budget, cut spending, and get our national debt under control.  I remain committed to participating in these important discussions until we agree on commonsense policies that properly support our hardworking families, seniors, veterans, and servicemembers.”
