I will support a Balanced Budget Amendment. We have a spending problem, not a revenue problem. We need to reduce the size of our bureaucracies in Washington, D.C.
More on Budget
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Don Bacon (NE-02) along with original co-sponsors Congressman Jack Bergman (MI-01) and Congressman Mike Gallagher (WI-08) today introduced the Accountability for Congressional Pay Act, which will directly link pay for Members of Congress to their ability to balance the budget.
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Shutting down the government and not funding our troops was not an option for Congressman Don Bacon (NE-02) as he voted yes for the Omnibus bill that will fund government operations including the military through September 2017. This Omnibus bill strengthens our military, border enforcement, and the National Institute for Health while keeping the IRS and EPA at reduced levels. I am pleased to see compromise on the demands to raise domestic spending dollar for dollar with defense spending.
