Increases Spending Levels from House-Passed Fiscal Year 2012 Budget Resolution
Washington, D.C. – Republican Congressman Jeff Flake, who represents Arizona’s Sixth District, today voted against H.J. Res. 79, the continuing resolution to fund the federal government through November 18, which increases federal spending levels by $24 billion over the House-passed FY2012 budget resolution.
“Despite strong rhetoric calling for austerity, merely a month after the debt ceiling deal was passed, Congress is back to increasing spending,” said Flake. “This is not what we should be doing.”
