Issa: “I Will Not Sell Our Future for This Year’s Budget”

Press Release
Oct 28, 2015

WASHINGTON, DC – Congressman Darrell Issa (CA-49) released the following statement following his vote against today’s budget deal:

“Americans expect Congress to be the force that reins in Washington’s out-of-control spending, including an Administration that has grown our federal bureaucracy to record levels. That means doing a better job of spending within our means, not creating new spending that abandons fiscal discipline to the tune of tens of billions of dollars.

“According to the Congressional Budget Office, $2.5 billion of the new spending is offset by pension payments that are accelerated – in other words, borrowing from the future in order to pay for our spending today. Other offsets are used twice – raiding one Social Security account to cover the shortfall of another. And one of the largest cost offsets is a one-time savings that doesn’t even take effect until 2025, ten years after the money is spent. I will not sell our future for this year’s budget.”
