Congressman Alex X. Mooney issued the following statement after today’s House vote on H.R. 2617 – FY23 Omnibus Appropriations. Rep. Mooney voted against the massive Democrat spending bill.
“The bloated $1.7 trillion omnibus spending bill is another example of Congress’ unwillingness to follow the standard budget process. The Biden Administration and this Congress have set a bad historic precedent for deficit spending and record-breaking inflation. This bill does not address our nation’s border crisis and does nothing to address President Biden’s planned rollback of Title 42, which will result in a human catastrophe at the border. The 4,000+ page bill is loaded with woke pork projects like a federal building to be named after Nancy Pelosi , an LGBTQ+ museum, and billions more added to our national debt. The new Republican Congress is coming. I look forward to a majority that will rein in wasteful government spending and work to secure our border. We must address the many ongoing problems our country is facing and become good stewards of taxpayer dollars.”
