Press Release: Shimkus Supports Bi-Partisan Deal

Congressman John Shimkus (R, Illinois-15) voted for the compromise reached by Senators in the budget stalemate.

Washington, DC...Congressman John Shimkus (R, Illinois-15) voted for the compromise reached by Senators in the budget stalemate.  The deal funds government operations through January 15, 2014, and extends the debt ceiling to February 7, 2014.

 

“In addition to the problems with Obamacare, I am deeply concerned about our nation’s long-term fiscal situation,” Shimkus noted.  “I am very hopeful that the budget conference committee, which is part of the overall agreement, will be successful in addressing the mandatory spending issues we face.

 

“And as Senator McConnell said in his remarks…the spending restraints negotiated in the Budget Control Act remain in place, and we will have two years of reduced government spending for the first time since the Korean War.”

 

House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan has already announced a breakfast meeting Thursday with Senate Budget Committee Chairman Patty Murray to begin the process of moving forward toward the December budget conference deadline.
