Budget Agreement Fails the Test

Dec 12, 2013
Press Release

Washington, D.C. – Today, the United States House of Representatives voted on the Ryan-Murray Budget. Congressman Randy Weber (R-Friendswood) made the following statement:

“While there are some positive aspects to the proposed budget, it does not go far enough. We wanted to balance the budget and this legislation does not make that a priority. We wanted to bring meaningful spending cuts to the table now, not 10 years down the road. This budget will increase spending by $48 billion over the next two years and it will increase air travel fees on the American people by 124%. The American people want their government to be responsible and more transparent about how it spends taxpayers’ hard-earned money. This agreement fails that test, which is why I cannot, in good conscience, vote for this legislation.”
