Congressman Mooney Votes Against Minibus Funding Deal

WASHINGTON, D.C – Today, the House of Representatives, with majority Democrat support, passed a thousand-page government funding bill for the Departments of Agriculture, Commerce, Energy, EPA, Housing and Urban Development, Interior, Justice, Transportation, and Veterans Affairs.

Congressman Alex X. Mooney said of his vote against the funding bill, “Once again, Congress is passing a spending plan that was negotiated behind closed doors and fails to hold the Biden Administration accountable. This spending deal increases the bloated Biden spending levels that supercharged inflation. It doesn’t stop the Department of Justice from using your taxpayer dollars to witchhunt Biden’s political opponents. And it continues to allow taxpayer funded abortions, transgender surgeries at the VA, and mail-order chemical abortions.”
