Crawford Votes for Fundamental Change to Washington

Congressman Rick Crawford (R-Ark.) today released the following statement regarding his vote in favor of the Budget Control Act of 2011: 

“Tonight I voted for fiscally responsible legislation that ensures America pays its debt and does not increase the burden on our country’s job creators.   The Budget Control Act will cut government spending by more than the debt ceiling is raised, does not raise taxes, caps reckless spending, and advances the Balanced Budget Amendment through Congress. While this legislation is not perfect, the seeds of the solution to Washington’s problem are planted in this bill – the Balanced Budget Amendment. This bill is a fundamental step in the right direction, implements structural changes to the way Washington does business, and allows America to live up to its greatness.”
