Lee Will Oppose Temporary House Spending Bill

Senator Mike Lee (R-UT) “announced Wednesday morning that he will vote against a stopgap measure to keep the government funded through March 18 because it does not make deep enough cuts to federal spending,” the Washington Post reports.

"The proposal is a disappointing failure on the part of both parties to seriously address the economic meltdown we face from our massive deficit and growing national debt," Lee said in a statement. "While some have been patting themselves on the back for proposing $4 billion in so-called ‘cuts’, in reality, this bill fully funds billions upon billions of dollars in wasteful, duplicative programs that should be eliminated, reduced, or reformed."
