Sam Johnson Opposes Omnibus Spending Bill
Washington, D.C. – In keeping with his conservative record, today U.S. Congressman Sam Johnson (TX-03) voted against the Consolidated Appropriations Act, also known as the “Omnibus.” The bill passed 316-113. Johnson was one of 95 Republicans to oppose the bill.
After casting his vote against the Omnibus, Johnson made the following statement:
“As a staunch social and fiscal conservative, there is a laundry list of reasons I oppose this Omnibus spending bill – not the least of which is the fact that a vast majority of my constituents oppose it! Besides the fact that it spends too much, this bill also 1) funds Obama’s executive amnesty, 2) funds Obamacare, 3) funds Planned Parenthood, 4) funds the Syrian refugee resettlement program, and 5) dramatically increases the numbers of visas available to foreign workers at a time of economic and national security uncertainty. This bill is simply not responsible, and it’s certainly not conservative. Despite the fact that this bill passed, my constituents can rest assured that I will continue to stand should-to-shoulder with them as we fight together against Obama’s liberal agenda.”
