WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Clay Higgins (R-LA) voted against the $1.3 trillion omnibus, which passed the U.S. House of Representatives today.
Congressman Higgins issued the following statement:
“While I fully support efforts to rebuild America’s military and secure our border, we are a nation that is $20 trillion in debt. This $1.3 trillion omnibus represents a massive increase in wasteful spending and government entitlement programs. We must restore fiscal order and take action to eliminate waste, fraud, and abuse in the federal government. This bill reflects a level of liberal ideology and deficit spending that I cannot in good conscience support.”
