Washington, D.C. - U.S. Senator Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) released the following statement regarding his opposition to the Budget Act of 2019:
"Our country is on an unsustainable fiscal path and this budget deal only makes matters worse for taxpayers. Equally troubling is the continuing trend of raising the debt ceiling, without corresponding, meaningful budgetary reforms. Our country does not have a revenue problem. We have a spending problem. And until Congress is willing to make tough spending choices, the national debt will continue to rise and trillion dollar deficits will be the norm."
