Vitter to Oppose Budget Deal

Senator David Vitter (R-LA) has announced his intention “to vote against a newly negotiated spending bill that trims $38 billion in federal funding over the next six months,” the Times-Picayune reports.

Vitter said the cuts just don’t go far enough.

"I’m voting no on this budget deal because we need a far more meaningful start to saving our country from fiscal ruin," Vitter said. " In the eight days leading up to this deal, we racked up $54 billion in new debt–way more than the proposed cuts. And when you look at the details of the cuts, even that $38 billion isn’t real. We must do far better."
