Statement

Rep. David B. McKinley (R-WV) responded to the recent Government Accountability Office (GAO) report released last week.

Last week, the non-partisan GAO released a report finding that "absent policy changes, the federal government continues to face an unsustainable fiscal path."

"This should be a wakeup call to all our Congressional leaders as we continue to operate without a budget, and flirt with financial disaster," said Rep. McKinley. "This audit of the government is straight forward: until we cut spending and deal with the more than $16 trillion debt, our economy continues to face stagnant growth."

"This report makes it clear--the federal government needs to get its house in order," said Rep. McKinley. "Businesses and families can't function like this and the government shouldn't either. It's time to take action and get our spending under control."
