WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Jerry Moran (R-Kan.), a member of the Senate Committee on Appropriations and one of the few members of Congress to vote against every stimulus and bailout bill, released the following statement about today’s passage of a two-week continuing resolution:
“I have hope both houses of Congress can come together on this borrowed time to begin confronting the fiscal crisis facing our nation. We can and should do what Kansans do every day: make decisions based on sound values and accountability.
“The best way to get our debt under control is to set a budget and stick to it – no excuses. The Senate took a promising first step today, but when we’re borrowing more than $5 billion a day, $4 billion in cuts is nothing to write home about. We need to get the issue of last year’s spending behind us so we can do the real work of adopting a budget to reduce the deficit next year and into the future.”
