The Ryan-Murray budget deal shows the one thing that Republicans and Democrats can agree on — “and that’s putting off hard decisions,” Sen. Mike Enzi (R-Wyo.) said Tuesday, after he voted to block consideration of the legislation that will raise discretionary spending.
“I sit up nights worrying about the nation’s debt and how it will affect Wyoming’s children, how it will affect my children, how it will affect my grandchildren,” Enzi said as he outlined some of the ways Congress could address its “spending problem.”
Enzi said the Ryan-Murray budget agreement “was an opportunity to apply reasonable constraints to impossibly high future spending. But instead we got more spending, and no real plan to solve the problem.”
