Pitts on Senate Spending Bill


Location: Washington, DC

This evening, the House voted on a Senate-passed bill to reopen the government and extend the debt limit. Congressman Joe Pitts (PA-16) voted against the bill, which passed 285-144.

Congressman Pitts' statement follows:

"The shutdown should never have happened. This episode exposes some of the worst elements of modern politics. This bill is a bad resolution to a bad situation. This bill punts yet again on our country's biggest problems. I hope that next time around both sides will do what's good for our country instead of trying to gain political advantage."
