"It's not the exact bill that I would have written," said Congerssman Bucson. "I think we need to get much better control of our federal spending, but it's a baby step in the right direction. It cuts over $20 billion from the budget over the next 10 years. The other thing it does is actually increase the spending to the Department of Defense under the sequester, which was affecting places like Crane Naval Service Warfare Center here in Indiana, and that was a positive thing that's really going to help our men and women in uniform."
Congressman Bucshon was in Vanderburgh County today visiting a Christmas tree farm when we caught up with him. That was just before the senate voted today.
