AFP-IN: House-Passed Bill Continues Cycle of Reckless Spending

Sep 27, 2018 by AFP

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – Americans for Prosperity-Indiana (AFP-IN) expressed disappointment after the U.S. House of Representatives joined the Senate in passing H.R. 6157, another huge appropriations bill that keeps spending at unsustainable levels and punts on important spending decisions for various government departments to the “lame duck” session. The bill passed 361-61. Reps. Jim Banks and Trey Hollingsworth were the only members of Indiana’s House delegation to vote against the measure.

 

AFP-IN State Director Justin Stevens issued the following statement:

“Lawmakers had another opportunity to demonstrate a commitment to fiscal restraint but instead greenlighted more of the thoughtless spending Hoosiers elected them to rein in. This defense of the status quo is a betrayal of taxpayers’ trust and apparently something most lawmakers have no will to correct.”

 

AFP is committed to pressing Congress to do better over the long-term through their grassroots effort, Stop Overspending. The group has consistently called on Congress to freeze federal discretionary spending and then begin to fix the underlying overspending problem in all areas of the budget.
