Congressman Doug Lamborn today voted against the Budget Control Act of 2011.
"This bill certainly moves Washington a step in the right direction. I appreciate that it attempts to set new priorities for Washington. But, at the end of the day, it falls short of solving Washington's overspending problem. I would have preferred to put Constitutional controls on spending through a balanced budget amendment.
"The possibility that serious defense cuts could happen under certain conditions concerns me greatly. I don't want to in any way to allow even the possibility of huge reductions in our military capacity.
"I will continue to fight to change how Washington does business. This is about our country, our way of life, and restoring confidence in the American Dream."-- Doug Lamborn (CO-05)
