Cotton Statement on the Budget Deal

Washington, D.C.— Congressman Tom Cotton (R-Dardanelle) issued the following statement opposing the budget deal:

“This budget deal busts the spending caps that took effect just months ago by spending billions now in exchange for supposed long-term spending cuts. Arkansans are tired of the Washington ‘long-term,’ which never seems to arrive. While the budget rightly asks federal employees to contribute more to their generous pensions and restores some needed funding for our military, these modest gains come at the expense of hard-won fiscal discipline because of the unreasonable demands of President Obama and Senate Democrats.  I will keep working to restrain spending and to find long-term solutions for Arkansas, just as I pledged I would.”
