LLPH thanks Rep. Jeff Duncan for leading the fight for this amendment and for voting against final passage of the overall bill that wastes a whole lot of money (including this $1 million that was included.
He stated on Facebook:
Our country’s spending addiction must end. If Congress can’t agree to stop a $1 million bailout for New York laywers when we’re $16 trillion in debt, how do we ever expect to balance the budget?!? http://clerk.house.gov/evs/2013/roll018.xml
LLPH needs more conservative fighters like Rep. Duncan for fighting for fiscal responsibility!
