Americans for Prosperity – Iowa applauded Congressman Steve King’s vote against the budget compromise offered by Senator Patty Murray and Congressman Paul Ryan. They were disappointed with Congressman Tom Latham’s support for higher spending and increasing taxes.
“Congressman King continues to be a leader on fiscal responsibility,” explained Mark Lucas, Iowa State Director of Americans for Prosperity. “His tough vote reflects that he understands Washington has a spending problem. Congressman Latham has enabled Washington to break another promise to the American people to cut spending. Promising cuts 10 years from now is laughable and disingenuous. Congress broke their promise of reducing spending that was made merely 2 years ago. We demand cuts now.”
