    Five Years of Votes for Spending Increases

    07/13/2006

    The National Taxpayers Union reports the results of its analysis of the voting records of Congressman and found that for the fifth year in a row no one in either chamber voted overall to cut federal spending.  In fact, for every 5 cents of spending cuts the average member of the House voted for one dollar of spending.  In the Senate that ratio was 2 cents of cuts to every dollar in spending.  How does one claim to be serious about reducing the deficit with such a voting record?
