Scott Opposes Short-Term Continuing Resolution Because We Must Get Our Fiscal House in Order

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Tim Scott (R-SC) issued the following statement after voting against a short-term, stopgap funding bill by the U.S. Senate:

“We have to get serious about addressing America’s debt crisis and curbing our spending addiction in government. I believe putting spending on auto-pilot, even for a short time, is not how we accomplish that. Today, I voted against the short-term continuing resolution because I, like most Americans, want our government to learn to live within its means and budget better.”
