Congressman Alex X. Mooney (WV-02) Votes for Fiscally Conservative Budget

Washington, DC – Congressman Alex Mooney (WV-02) voted in favor of H. Con. Res. 71- the Building a Better America Budget resolution and released the following statement:

“Today, I voted for the Building a Better America Budget (H. Con. Res. 71) because it represents the fiscally conservative principles that I promised my constituents I would represent.

In addition to laying the groundwork for President Donald Trump’s tax reform plan, this budget balances the federal budget over 10 years and trims $6.5 billion in government spending.

Our country cannot tax itself out of $20 trillion in debt—we have to make tough decisions and reduce the size of the federal government.

This budget also provides a much needed $72.4 million increase in funding for our military to rebuild our national defense”, said Rep. Mooney.
