|Rep. McCollum is displeased|
“This vote was an important test for Republicans and Democrats as to whether they have the stomach to cut wasteful Pentagon spending at a time when Washington is facing trillion dollar deficits.," said McCollum in a written media release. "Unfortunately, a majority decided taxpayer-funded race cars and bass fishing were more important than deficit reduction.
"The good news is a broad bipartisan group of 202 conservatives, moderates, and progressives came together for the good of our children’s fiscal future," said McCollum. "My colleague, Rep. Jack Kingston, has been a terrific partner on this issue, and I think together we’ve demonstrated that first and foremost we are legislators working for the best interest of the American people.”
