Today U.S. Congressman Dean Heller (R-NV) made the following statement on the vote to require the House Budget Committee to set non-security budget allocation levels for the remainder of FY 2011 at FY 2008 spending levels or less (H.Res. 38).

"This government has been on a massive spending spree over the last four years and it is time for this reckless behavior to end. As an opponent of the stimulus and the only member of the Nevada delegation to vote against the bailout, I believe it is critical to rein in spending. It is time to control spending, address the yearly deficits, and get government debt under control," said Heller.

According to Congressional Budget Office, the U.S. will spend $800 billion on yearly interest payments by 2020 if federal spending is not addressed.
