Congressman Bob Latta (R-Bowling Green) released the following statement after voting against the budget deal that raises the debt ceiling and increases government spending by $322 billion. Latta is an original cosponsor of H.J.Res. 22, a balanced budget amendment.
“Washington doesn’t have a revenue problem; it has a spending problem. Without spending reductions, I couldn’t support a debt ceiling increase. Government should have to balance its budget just like every family and business across this great country. I will continue to fight for solutions that grow our economy and improve life for Americans.”
