“We won’t solve this debt crisis unless and until we fix our broken budget process”
WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA) comments on the Senate passing a government funding agreement that also establishes a select committee to change its broken budget process:
“This funding agreement provides for our military to help recover from a decade of disinvestment but it also significantly adds to our national debt. We are past the tipping point in this debt crisis and it is costing us the ability to do the right thing. However, there is a silver lining in this plan. It finally establishes a select committee to address our broken budget process. Fixing the budget process alone will not solve our debt crisis, but we won’t solve this debt crisis unless and until we fix our broken budget process. This select committee is our opportunity to finally develop a process that works.”
Senator Perdue has been calling on Congress to change its budget process for years, and recently published an op-ed in The Hill about how this failed budget process will never work. Read the op-ed here.
