Toomey Statement on Budget Deal

February 9, 2018

Washington, D.C.- U.S. Senator Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) released the following statement regarding the budget deal:

"The budget agreement proposes a badly needed spending increase to strengthen national security, rebuild our neglected military, and honor our commitment to veterans. Unfortunately, it also adds $131 billion in non-security spending, without any real, meaningful offsetting spending reductions. Our federal government is on an unsustainable fiscal path. This spending spree makes it worse."
