A ‘no’ vote on the budget deal is a vote for more spending
By U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA)
When President Trump set out to negotiate a budget deal, he had two primary goals: continue to reduce discretionary spending as a percentage of the economy and fully fund our military.
Those goals were accomplished last week when the Trump administration and congressional leaders struck a deal on spending caps and the debt ceiling.
Unfortunately, many of my Senate colleagues are considering voting no on this deal, because they want to reduce spending. Well, so do I.
In this case, however, a no vote actually is a vote to increase spending over time.
