Corker opposes massive spending bill
U.S. Senator Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) Thursday announced his opposition to the massive spending agreement reached by congressional leaders. “This agreement increases the discretionary spending caps by nearly $300 billion over the next two years, perpetuates the abuse of military operations, and tees up another spending battle two years from now. It is also only partially offset, and most of those offsets occur years from now, doubling down on the irresponsible mentality in Congress of spend-now-pay-later. To say I am discouraged by the outcome of these negotiations would be an understatement.” The budget proposal with the large deficits come on the heels of a tax revamp that reduced taxes on large corporations and the wealthy, leading to estimates by economists of $1.5 trillion added to the deficit.
