WASHINGTON, D.C. - Congressman André Carson released the following statement today in response to the House vote on another short-term spending bill.
"While most Americans agree that reducing the deficit and spending are important, it should not be at the cost of critical investments that put people back to work. By refusing to compromise on a measure that funds the government for the full year, Republicans have forced another temporary extension to fund the federal government.
"In order to prevent a shutdown I supported today's resolution. The uncertainty that is caused by week-to-week funding must come to an end because Americans demand that we do better."
