Press Release

Congressman Joe Wilson (SC-02) released the following statement after the House passage of H.R. 1, which cuts government spending by $100 Billion compared to the President’s budget request for 2011:

"This week, the House passed one of the largest spending reductions in American history in H.R. 1. This legislation will save hard-working taxpayers $100 Billion dollars. I would like to thank both the House Republican Leadership and the conservative freshman class for following through on our Pledge to America.

"Limiting federal spending is critical for job creation, the promotion of private sector investment, and for putting our country back on the path to financial prosperity.  House Republicans intend to continue to follow through on our promises to stop Washington’s four-year out-of-control spending binge."
