Bishop Votes to Reduce Deficit and Control Spending
Congressman Bishop issued the following statement following the vote on the House floor:
"I host a lot of town hall meetings. Reducing spending and cutting the deficit are themes I hear constantly from constituents, and I agree with them. It's high time we slowed down out of control federal spending. This deficit reduction act is the right thing to do, and demonstrates discipline and responsibility with the taxpayers' money."
"Let's not forget, we aren't cutting spending with this bill – we are simply reducing the rate of growth. We're still going to spend overall more next year than this year, but this is a step in the right direction of getting our fiscal house in order."
