Senator Chose Fiscal Responsibility Over Partisanship
RALEIGH, NC – In response to news that Senators Kay Hagan and Richard Burr voted against the Democrat plan to replace the sequester which goes into effect today, Americans for Prosperity – North Carolina issued a note thanking the Senators, and in particular Hagan, for listening to North Carolina’s grassroots activists. Over the past few weeks AFP activists have called, visited, and emailed Senator Hagan in support of keeping the sequester and supporting spending reductions.
“Senator Hagan rejected partisanship in favor of fiscal responsibility when she voted against her party’s plan to replace the sequester spending reductions with tax increases and minimal spending cuts,” explained Dallas Woodhouse, State Director of Americans for Prosperity. “North Carolinians are sick of Washington’s addiction to overspending and sent a strong message to Senator Hagan that it is time for the federal government to cut spending. With only an 11% AFP budget and spending career score, Senator Hagan needs to step up and make more decisions like this one.”
“AFP North Carolina is excited to have the opportunity to thank both of our US Senators for being fiscally responsible.
We appreciate Senators Burr and Hagan for voting to keep the sequester.”
