Representative Kevin Hern (OK-01) released the following statement after voting against HR 6833, the Continuing Resolution to fund the government through December 16th.
"More spending is not the answer," said Rep. Hern. "We wouldn't be in this situation if we had a budget, but Congress has failed the American people in that for years. My budget was the only one introduced in the House for the last two years. These short-term spending bills don't address the rampant spending happening; they reinforce the bad habits formed by our government over the last two decades. We need to do the hard work of governance and pass a budget -- that's the only thing that will help the American people hurting from Biden's recession."
