Rep. Harris Will Vote For Historic Budget Control Act

Washington, DC – Today, Rep. Andy Harris will vote for the historic Budget Control Act of 2011, which will reduce spending by more than $2.7 trillion over the next decade, is coupled with a Balanced Budget Amendment, and would end the debt limit crisis.  The bill would also cut government spending by a larger amount than the debt ceiling increase.

“I didn’t come to Washington to put off making the tough decisions necessary to deal with our crippling debt and deficits,” said Rep. Andy Harris. “I came to Washington to end budget tricks, accounting gimmicks and empty promises. A Balanced Budget Amendment will provide the permanent accountability that America needs in Washington. The Budget Control act ends the debt limit crisis, and builds an environment for a strong, healthy economy and the job creation we so desperately need.”

Currently, the U.S. Government has a national debt of $14.5 trillion and runs an annual deficit of $1.65 trillion a year.
