Smith Statement on Budget
Washington, D.C. – Congressman Adrian Smith (R-NE) released the following statement today after voting against the Mnuchin-Pelosi budget deal:
“I cannot support a budget which raises spending this much without needed budget reforms. By lifting budget caps and raising the debt ceiling without corresponding spending cuts, we only push the problem to a later date without a solution.”
This budget agreement raises budget caps by $321 billion and suspends the debt ceiling until July of 2021. It passed the House by a vote of 284-149.
