Senator Roy Blunt's Statement On Deal To Re-Open The Government

By Larry Wright. CREATED Oct 17, 2013

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Roy Blunt (Mo.) released the following statement after the Senate voted to re-open the government, prevent default, and protect the spending reductions in the Budget Control Act:

“The federal government spends too much and borrows too much. Those must be the two main targets after today’s vote and until we get our spending under control. Debate priorities, set priorities, and live within our means; that’s what American families have to do and what our government must do.”

Missouri Senator Claire McCaskill also voted for the measure.
