Bacon Votes Yes on Budget and Debt Limit Package

Congressman Don Bacon (NE-02) today voted yes on a budget and debt limit package that was backed by the President.

“If I could vote ‘no’ and be assured this would result in less spending and lower deficits, I would absolutely do so," said Rep. Bacon. "The President asked for a yes vote on this because a no vote would have resulted in months of budget instability, higher deficits, a weakened national defense, the removal of $7 billion for border security, and elimination of pro-life protections that he has put in place. While far from perfect, this agreement funds our most urgent national priorities and provides fiscal stability for our growing economy.”
