Lamborn Backs Plan to Cut Spending

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

Congressman Doug Lamborn voted in favor the Budget Control Act of 2011, the revised Boehner plan. The bill passed the House today by a vote of 218 to 210. The bill now heads to the Senate for a vote.

"This is not a perfect plan, but it is a sincere, honest effort to fundamentally change the way Washington does business. It ensures that the federal government will meet all its financial obligations in the short term. Under this plan, every government payment would go out on time. But, down the road, it calls for additional spending cuts and a balanced budget amendment before Congress will raise the debt ceiling a second time.

"I would prefer deeper spending cuts. But I am glad for the possibility of putting more fiscal discipline for Congress into the Constitution. This is the only way we can control spending and make sure that the American dream survives for our children and grandchildren.

"This is the second time in ten days that House Republicans have sent to the Senate a common-sense plan for restoring our nation's fiscal strength. I urge our Senators to work with us in a bipartisan effort to solve our overspending problem." - Doug Lamborn (CO-05)
