Washington—Heritage Action released the following statement from Vice President Jessica Anderson in response to today's vote in the House of Representatives to pass the "Bipartisan Budget Act":
On behalf of the millions of Americans who support a fiscally responsible federal government, Heritage Action for America thanks every representative who took a stand and opposed today's budget bill. Every "no" vote was a vote against increasing spending and for generations of American taxpayers.
Tonight's House vote to suspend the debt ceiling and allow nearly $2 trillion of future spending was deeply disappointing. To cut spending and continue protecting our national defense, every senator should do the right thing and vote "no." American taxpayers will thank them.
