Corker blasts deficeit spending
During a hearing Wednesday on the Congressional Budget Office’s (CBO) budget and economic outlook for the next ten years, U.S. Senator Bob Corker (R-Tenn.), a member of the Senate Budget Committee, discussed how Congress as a whole and the Trump administration have neglected fiscal responsibility. “None of us have covered ourselves in glory,” said Corker. “This Congress and this administration likely will go down as one of the most fiscally irresponsible administrations and Congresses that we’ve had.” Adding to the debt was the Republican tax cut plan which primarily benefited the wealthy. The Congressional Budget Office determined that the move will add $1.5 trillion to the national debt. Recent analysis by the Committee for a Responsible Federal Government showed that the vote to increase spending in the recent $1.4 trillion omnibus spending bill, if made permanent, would add $2 trillion to the national debt. Corker voted against that spending bill, calling it “one of the most grotesque pieces of legislation I can remember.” Senator Corker is not seeking re-election.
