McCarthy Statement on CR Passage
Washington D.C. – Congressman Kevin McCarthy released the following statement regarding the passage of H.R. 1, Full Year Continuing Appropriations Act, 2011:
"Today the House took a meaningful first step in removing barriers to job growth by reining in the culture of spending in Washington. House Republicans fulfilled our pledge to America by passing a funding bill that will cut spending by more than $100 billion over the next seven months. These cuts represent tough choices, but we owe it to future generations to leave them with an America that is more prosperous than the one we inherited. We will not achieve this when the federal government is borrowing forty cents to pay for every dollar it spends. It is my hope that the President will step up to the plate and join us in leading the country toward fiscal responsibility."
