Press Release

Congressman Joe Wilson (SC-02) released the following statement after the House of Representatives passed the Budget Control Act:

“Washington is broken and we need to stop its out-of-control spending. Due to the inaction of both Democrats in the Senate and the current Administration, our nation’s debt ceiling is now at a critical juncture. This past November, Americans made it clear they expect their elected leaders to make meaningful fiscal reforms today so as to not burden future generations with crushing deficits and debts tomorrow.

“Holding Washington accountable for its spending is the solution I support. Last week, I praised Speaker John Boehner for passing the plan best suited for such a solution: the Cut, Cap, and Balance Act of 2011.”
