McCarthy Statement On Passage Of Omnibus

Washington D.C. – House Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy (CA-23) released the following statement on passage of the FY14 Omnibus:

“This legislation represents the continued fiscal discipline from the House Republican majority that is turning our nation away from damaging debt and deficits to renewed prospects of fiscal freedom. By placing the power of the purse back in the hands of Congress and away from the executive branch, our representative Democracy is functioning the way our Founders had intended. With a budget that reforms spending programs and creates certainty for the fiscal year, Congress can focus its energy on the pressing economic issues facing Americans today from stagnant wages, rising costs and diminished opportunity. I want to thank Chairman Rogers and the House Appropriations Committee for their tireless work to get this legislation finalized.”
