Roskam: Senate Votes Continue Status-Quo

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

Congressman Peter Roskam (R-IL), Chief Deputy Whip, issued the following statement after the two Senate votes on the Continuing Resolution:

"Today's votes show a great contrast between those willing to do something meaningful for long-term job creation and those committed to Washington's status-quo. House Republicans have already passed a serious proposal to responsibly fund the government while cutting back spending to pre-stimulus, pre-2008 levels. In contrast, Senate Democrats created a status-quo spending bill and then "drew a line in the sand' against negotiating any more cuts. We need to find common ground to keep the government running while meaningfully cutting spending -- it's long past time Democrats settle their internal divisions and join the discussion with a serious proposal."
