Sam Johnson Opposes Obama-Boehner Budget Deal
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today U.S. Congressman Sam Johnson (TX-03) voted in opposition to the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2015 (H.R. 1314). After his vote, Johnson made the following statement:
“As a staunch fiscal conservative, I have been working with my fellow conservative colleagues to stop Washington’s out-of-control spending and get our fiscal house in order,” said Johnson. “Unfortunately, today’s budget deal goes in the wrong direction. Instead of building upon our hard-won efforts, this deal increases spending…and I could not in good conscience support it.
“American families want, need, and deserve a Washington that is fiscally responsible, and my constituents can rest assured I’ll continue to do everything within my power to get our country back on track.”
