Backroom Budget Deals are Bad for America

Press Releases · May 21, 2019

Washington—Heritage Action released the following statement in response to reports that the Senate and House will soon reach a deal on spending levels:

Reports of a potential budget caps deal are alarming. If true, this is the worst of Washington where insiders work with a few congressional leaders to craft a deal behind closed doors which will undoubtedly further bankrupt America. President Trump was elected to do away with swampy deal-making like this, and he should insist on transparent negotiations that keep overall spending at the topline established by the Budget Control Act.
