WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) issued the following statement after voting for the Continuing Resolution (CR) to fund the government at the reduced levels mandated by the sequester:
?“This bill represents the first modest step toward *reining in wasteful, Washington spending. Though imperfect, this bill lowers spending levels, keeps the sequester savings in place, and ensures our military and border patrol have the funding and flexibility they need. And, it will avoid more ‘crisis governing’ that undermines public confidence.??
“A more significant, permanent solution would be for the Senate to pass a Balanced Budget Amendment, which I’ve sponsored and all Senate Republicans support.”
