Rehberg Will Continue to Hold the Line on Taxes, Federal Spending in New Year
January 11, 2006
WASHINGTON, D.C. - Montana's Congressman, Denny Rehberg (R), today said he's looking forward to again focusing on controlling federal spending as the second session of the 109th Congress convenes later this month.
"It is absolutely time for Washington D.C. to get a handle on spending, I believe we can eliminate the deficit, and meet our responsibilities without raising taxes, " said Rehberg, a member of the House Appropriations Committee. "It's about focusing on priorities, and we need to make sure the taxpayers' dollars are well spent."
According to Rehberg, with the President set to lay out his agenda for the country in his upcoming State of the Union Address, and with Congress set to reconvene soon, now is the time to be developing plans to control spending.
"As a member of the House Appropriations Committee, I scrutinize every dollar we spend to make sure taxpayers are getting the biggest bang for the buck, and I'll continue to make that a priority," Rehberg said.
