Congressman Alex X. Mooney Blasts 45-Day Stopgap Spending

Today, Republican leadership in Congress joined with all but one Democrat to continue President Biden’s outrageous spending that is bankrupting America and ruining our economy with inflation.


The vote today funds the federal government for 45 days with no spending cuts at all, and keeps the entire Biden agenda in place. This is an affront to the voters who gave Republicans the majority last November. 


Congressman Mooney said of his vote against the 45-day stopgap spending measure, “This plan surrenders the powerful decisions on spending to President Joe Biden and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer. President Biden will have the ability to continue to push his reckless open border policies, record-breaking inflation, and the corrupt DOJ targeting President Trump for at least the next 45 days. Rather than stop out-of-control spending, this plan keeps our country on a path of unsustainable spending on the backs of American taxpayers, our children, and future generations.”


Congressman Mooney added, Congress must do its Constitutional duty and keep the Biden administration’s reckless agenda in check. I will continue to work with my colleagues to pass a full year spending plan that stops runaway inflation.”
