Wilson: Washington Liberals Keep Up Old Habits, Pass Another Billion Dollar Bill That America Cannot Afford


Location: Washington, DC

Congressman Joe Wilson (SC-02) released the following statement today after voting against H.R. 5019, the Home Star Energy Retrofit Act of 2010:

"The cost of this legislation, $6.6 billion, is entirely too high at a time when Washington must get serious about spending. Despite recent testimony from the administration's "fiscal commission' about America's dangerous fiscal state and the need for serious sacrifice, Washington liberals kept up their old habits today and passed another billion dollar bill that America cannot afford.

"I support the bill's intent to encourage energy efficiency, but I believe there are other ways to achieve our energy goals without spending $6.6 billion. Tough choices are needed to curb Washington's spending habits and today's vote was one such choice," said Congressman Joe Wilson.
