Maloney to Oppose “Drunken-Sailor” Spending Deal
WASHINGTON – Representative Sean Patrick Maloney (NY-18) released the following statement of opposition to the proposed Senate budget deal. The legislation would add billions of dollars to the deficit - on top of over $1.5 trillion added by the tax bill which created new trillion-dollar annual deficits.
"When it comes to the budget, both parties agree on only one thing: being irresponsible. This isn't compromise, it's collusion; it's not bipartisan, it's a pay-off. This is drunken-sailor spending that comes right after Republicans in Washington put trillions in new debt on our country’s credit card. They continue to kick the can down the road when we should tackle our problems now — from the deficit to the Dreamers.
“This budget-busting deal is bad for my neighbors in the Hudson Valley. Count me out."
