Johanns Supports Fiscally Responsible Spending Caps


Location: Washington, DC

U.S. Sen. Mike Johanns (R-Neb.) today voted in the Senate Appropriations Committee to set federal spending caps consistent with current law, as set in the Budget Control Act (BCA) of 2011. This cap, however, was rejected along party lines with Democrats voting to spend an additional $91 billion above the legal limit in the next fiscal year alone.

"Ignoring the spending levels we all agreed to in the last Congress and the President signed into law does nothing to get a handle on our nation's debt and deficit," Johanns said. "In fact, all it does do is allow Senators to continue spending while setting the stage for another round of sequester cuts. This was our opportunity to responsibly turn off the sequester. The majority should remember that come this fall."
