Spending Cut Voting Review in the House: Appropriation Spending Cuts

As House begins the 2nd Week of Appropriations Debate, watch this great speech by Congressman Tom McClintock on the need to cut spending: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mG5eMr9qASk

Last week, members were given two opportunities to cut spending. Sadly, both amendments were rejected. See the recorded votes here:

1. Broun Amendment to VA-HUD Appropriations FY 2014: To reduce real property for agencies by $38,513,000, and apply the savings to the spending reduction account. (this is specifically so that the United States will stop funding the building of another NATO headquarters…ridiculous): http://clerk.house.gov/evs/2013/roll188.xml (and 89 GOPers voted no…pathetic).

2. Bishop (NY) Amendment to Homeland Security Appropriations FY 2014: An amendment to eliminate the National Bio- and Agro-defense facility and apply the savings to the spending reduction account.: http://clerk.house.gov/evs/2013/roll199.xml (218 GOPers voted no…pathetic again). 

Both Amendments would have helped to reduce our deficit. We look forward to watching more spending cut amendments come up as we are learning the true leaders from those in the go-along, get-along club.
