Blum issues statement on ‘No’ vote on CR

Congressman Blum -- CROPPEDFrom Press Release


U.S. Rep. Rod Blum (R-IA 1) issued the following statement on his vote against the continuing resolution:

“Today I voted no on the continuing resolution because I believe that short term, last minute funding measures that kick the can down the road are not the proper way to run our country. When regular order is abandoned in favor of back room deals the American people are not truly represented. No wonder nearly 70 percent of Americans think our country is headed in the wrong direction: career politicians from both sides of the aisle refuse to accept responsibility and do the job they were elected to do.”
