Vote Description

Debt Limit Increase/Spending Cuts. H.J.Res. 45 (Roll Call 8)



The Senate defeated an amendment to the Debt Ceiling bill which would have cut federal spending by a total of $120 billion. Amendment opponents insisted on dividing the amendment into three separate votes. This vote was to eliminate $22 billion in excessive overhead and duplicative programs. ACU supports this kind of fiscal restraint but it was defeated January 26, 2010, by a vote of 33-61.
