Washington - Republican Study Committee Chairman Mark Walker released the following statement praising the passage of spending rescissions in the House of Representatives:
“One thing I’ve learned in Washington is that politicians like unspent money to be held in bloated government accounts so they can use it later as a way to expand the size of government, hiding it from their constituents. Today, we say no more and that unspent government money should be returned to the taxpayers. This rescission package, a procedure used by Republican and Democratic administrations, represents the largest use of this tool to cut wasteful spending in history.
“At the Republican Study Committee, we have been working with the Office of Management and Budget on these spending cuts since last Fall. I am glad that those conversations led to some tangible results.”
