Rep. Chris Collins explains vote on budget bill

posted by Howard B. Owens in NY-27, chris collins.

Press release:

“Tonight (last night), the House voted to increase our national debt by over $300 billion without achieving a single spending cut. I could not, in good faith, vote in favor of this legislation which only adds billions to the credit card bill our children will be left to pay.

America has a significant and dangerous spending problem that most of Washington is content to ignore. On behalf of my constituents, I will not ignore this fact. Kicking the can down the road is what caused this problem and Washington has to muster the political courage to deal with it for the future of our country.”

BRAVO! I commend Representative Collins for having the wisdom to realize that increasing the debt is as irresponsible as any fool could be... and having the balls to stand strong for this understanding.

To all those who caved in, they are FOOLS who know no better but to just keep kicking the can further down the road to insolvency.
