Cotton Statement on the Senate’s Spending and Debt Limit Legislation

Arkansas Congressman Tom Cotton voted for the Senate deal that raises the debt ceiling and reopens the federal government.
Washington, D.C. — Congressman Tom Cotton (R-Dardanelle) released the following statement on the Senate’s spending and debt limit legislation:

“I supported legislation tonight to prevent Barack Obama from risking a default on our national debt and to open parts of the government that were temporarily shut down. This bill is far from perfect, but it preserves annual spending caps and allows for more negotiation to stop Washington's out-of-control spending. Senate Democrats have fought hard for more spending and to protect Obamacare at all costs. They even voted to keep Congress's special Obamacare exemption rather than keeping the government open. I'll use the time provided by this bill to keep fighting for Arkansas taxpayers who also want to be protected from Obamacare, as well as real spending reforms.”
