Congressman Tim Griffin (AR-02) issued the following statement marking the 1,000th day since the Senate has passed a budget:
"For the past 1,000 days, Senate Democrats have failed to pass a budget, one of the most basic responsibilities of governing. They refuse to recognize what most Arkansas families know: Developing a budget forces you to make tough decisions and prioritize where you put your money. Last year, the House passed a budget, demonstrating that we're serious about addressing our national debt and creating a pro-growth tax code. Show you're serious: pass a budget."
