Congresswoman Mary Miller (R-IL) released the following statement on her NO vote on the “CR”:
“I voted no on the “CR” continuing resolution because I will not be part of the process to kick government funding down the road until the holidays, when Senate and House “insiders” will agree to ram through some massive omnibus with Ukraine funding behind closed doors.
Last year, Senate Democrats, Senate Republicans, and House Democrats passed a massive omnibus on Christmas Eve while no one was watching. The DC Swamp does not want the transparency and accountability that comes with passing 12 appropriations bills.
Last night, I voted for four conservative appropriations bills to reverse the damage Biden has done with his America Last agenda, and I have now voted for five bills to fund the government and keep our promises to the American people.
I have directed the clerk to withhold my pay and I will vote on appropriations bills all day, every day, until we keep the promises that we made to hold Joe Biden and the DC Swamp accountable through our “power of the purse.”
