Congressman Tom McClintock

Representing the 4th District of California

Continuing Resolution to Fund the Government: Yes

December 8, 2016
Vote Notes on Legislation

Continuing Resolution to Fund the Government: Yes.  Hopefully, this is the last continuing resolution that we will see.  Like those before it, it spends too much, abandons Congress’ fundamental responsibility to superintend the nation’s finances, and circumvents the normal budget process.  But it also gets us out of the debt, doubt and despair of the Obama administration into the prosperity, hope and promise of the Trump era.  It will give our new President enough time to change the spending priorities that will fund the remainder of the fiscal year and set our course toward solvency and prosperity in the years ahead.  This alone gets it past my gag reflex.
