Rep. Messer Votes Against $1.2 Trillion Spending Package 


U.S. Rep. Luke Messer (IN-06) issued the below statement following his vote against the $1.2 trillion spending package in the House.

“Republicans have the White House, Senate and House, yet too often, we’re still doing business the same old way.  This massive funding bill spends $1.2 trillion and is over 1,300 pages long. The legislation contained several good provisions that I support, but we can’t keep doing things the same way and expect different results. These measures should have been debated and voted on one at a time, with 12 different bills, not bundled together and jammed though in one giant piece of legislation.  I voted no because the process is broken, and it’s well past time to fix it.”
