Apr 17, 2018
Press Release

Washington - Republican Study Committee Chairman Mark Walker released the following statement in response to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s refusal to back a rescissions package:

“Once again, Mitch McConnell is making excuses for why Republicans cannot do what we all promised in the past. His latest rejection of President Trump’s spending cuts shows that McConnell prioritizes his backroom deal with Democrats over Republicans’ promise to rein in government excess. Republicans in the House stand ready and willing to work with the White House to cut wasteful spending.”
