JONES VOTES AGAINST ADDING $9 TRILLION TO NATIONAL DEBT

Jan 13, 2017 Issues: Budget Spending and Taxes

WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Congressmen Walter B. Jones (R-NC) voted against S. Con. Res. 3, the largest budget ever passed in United States history. The bill passed the House with a vote of 227-198.

“America cannot continue to borrow and spend, with no end in sight,” said Congressman Jones. “That is why I have voted against every bloated budget for the past 12 years. During that period, the national debt has increased by over $12 trillion. If we continue down this irresponsible path, there will be consequences for all Americans.  A broke nation cannot be a great nation.”
