US Representative Sue Myrick (NC-09) voted today for a 5% across the board cut in the operating budget of Congress itself, immediately saving American taxpayers $35 million.

"In our current economic climate, the American people have tightened their belts and are living on smaller budgets," Rep. Myrick said. "It's time for Congress to take a cue from them and do the same thing".

The resolution, which passed in the House by a vote of 410 - 13, reduces the budget of each Member, Committee and Leadership office by 5% of FY 2010 levels. It reduces the budget of the Appropriations Committee by 9% of FY 2010 levels.
