REP. TREY HOLLINGSWORTH'S STATEMENT ON HIS VOTE REGARDING A CONTINUING RESOLUTION
Kicking the can down the road does not address critical issues of concern for Hoosiers
Washington, D.C. — Representative Trey Hollingsworth released the following statement regarding his vote on the Continuing Resolution that was offered today. The resolution that was presented would fund the federal government for an additional week at current spending levels for out-of-date priorities. Traditionally, Continuing Resolutions are passed in lieu of in-depth and comprehensive budgets.
"Today, I voted against a measure that promoted the very culture and status quo that I was sent to Washington, D.C. to combat. Instead of listening to the chorus of American voices demanding real change, politicians kicked the can down the road and promoted 'politics as usual.' I did not vote to continue funding Obamacare; I did not vote to continue out-of-control spending; I did not vote to continue inadequately-resourcing our men and women in uniform. Today, I voted to change the culture in Washington, D.C."
