Sen. Cruz Votes Against Budget Agreement

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) today issued the following statement after voting against the budget agreement:

“This budget deal is yet another missed opportunity to rein in excessive government spending. While I am pleased to see increased funding for our national defense and our men and women in uniform, unfortunately this bill perpetuates Democrats’ big government programs, increases our deficits, and plunges us further into debt. Instead of running up bills we can’t pay, we should be fighting for the American people’s common sense priorities such as securing our southern border, cutting taxes, and reducing regulations.”
