Wilson Statement on Government Funding and Debt Ceiling Bill
Congressman Joe Wilson (SC-02) released the following statement after the House passed a bill to fund the government until January 15, 2014, and extend the debt ceiling until February 7, 2014.
Congressman Wilson said, “Prior to and during the government shutdown, I voted in favor of multiple pieces of legislation to keep the government functioning and protect our fragile economy from default. I am disappointed that I could not support tonight’s legislation because it did not reflect my core beliefs of limited government and expanded freedom. Congress has a long road ahead of us in the coming months and I remain committed to fighting for a better future for all of the constituents I have the privilege of representing in South Carolina’s Second Congressional District.”
