3-month debt deal disappointing, but buys American people time

FAIRFAX, VA—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning issued the following statement in response to the latest deal on the debt ceiling, continuing resolution and disaster relief funding:

“While it is disappointing that the status quo in Washington, D.C. is being perpetuated through December on the continuing resolution and debt ceiling, President Donald Trump has changed the playing field. By extending the debate over the debt ceiling and government funding for another 3 months, this allows a more focused effort to get the GOP Congress to keep their promises on funding the wall, reining in government, cutting taxes and repealing Obamacare. This buys the American people the time they need to make their voices heard, and most importantly, it gives GOP legislators one last chance to get it right.”
