AFP Expresses Disappointment in Senate for Blocking Vote on Rescission

Jun 20, 2018 by AFP

Arlington, VA – Following the failed procedural vote in the Senate on President Trump’s rescission package, AFP Chief Government Affairs Officer Brent Gardner issued the following statement:

“President Trump’s rescission package represented less than half a cent on the dollar in federal spending and taxpayers should be appalled by the Senate’s failure to clear a bar set so low you could trip over it. This was an easy vote for anyone with an ounce of fiscal restraint. Americans deserve better.”
