Wilson: "What Will Finally Wake Washington Liberals Up?" Democrats Defeat Another Cost-Savings Proposal

Statement

Date:
Location: Washington, DC

Congressman Joe Wilson (SC-02), a cosponsor of H.R. 5535 to save taxpayers $15 billion by selling excess federal land, released the following statement after Democrats defeated this cost-savings and common-sense proposal:

"Today's bill to save taxpayers $15 billion by selling unnecessary federal land should have been a bipartisan no-brainer. Sadly, that wasn't the case as uncompromising Democrats defeated yet another common-sense, cost-savings proposal.

"What will finally wake Washington liberals up? It certainly doesn't seem like a $13 trillion debt is doing the trick.

"Although the proposal was defeated, hardworking Americans must continue to make their voices heard through YouCut and other outlets until Washington liberals finally get the message to stop this spending spree," said Congressman Joe Wilson.

The cost-savings federal land proposal was defeated by a vote of 241-179.
