McCaul Statement on House Passed Budget Deal

WASHINGTON, DC– Today following House passage of the budget deal that also raises the debt ceiling, H.R. 1314 Congressman Michael McCaul (R-TX), made the following statement:

McCaul: "The entire manner in which this deal was cobbled together is disappointing. Our nation is threatened not only by ISIS and other extremist groups but also by an exploding national debt.  This legislation raises the debt ceiling well beyond the $18 trillion we currently have without dollar for dollar offset spending cuts or structural changes, and it still fails to meet the Pentagon’s request for funding our troops."
