Spending cuts BEFORE debt ceiling increase: Budd says YES. (NO Comment from Tillis.)

It’s good to see our new senator siding with the likes of Mike Lee (R-Utah):

Twenty-four Republican senators have signed a letter to President Joe Biden stating their opposition to raising the debt limit without reforms addressing the $31 trillion national debt.

Led by Sens. Mike Lee, R-Utah, and Ted Budd, R-N.C., the letter states that the policy of the Senate Republican conference is “that any increase in the debt ceiling must be accompanied by cuts in federal spending of an equal or greater amount as the debt ceiling increase, or meaningful structural reform in spending, such as the Prevent Government Shutdown Act or the Full Faith and Credit Act.” 

The Prevent Government Shutdown Act would provide continuing appropriations automatically in order to fund the government if Congress cannot pass a spending bill by the end-of-year deadline. The Full Faith and Credit Act would prioritize federal payments in case the debt limit isn’t increased.[…]

Here is the actual letter.

And here is more on the story:

[…] The letter was led by Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) and co-signed by 23 other GOPs, including Sens. Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.), Ron Johnson (R-Wis.), Mike Braun (R-Ind.), Ted Budd (R-N.C.), Ted Cruz (R-Texas), Rick Scott (R-Fla.), Rand Paul (R-Ky.), Mike Crapo (R-Idaho), James Risch (R-Idaho.), John Barrasso (R-Wyo.), and James Lankford (R-Okla.)[…]

That’s HALF of the Senate Republican caucus, boys and girls.  It’s a shame we can’t have 30 or 40 of them.  I mean, this fiscal conservatism stuff is only a fundamental principle of the GOP.

Let’s hope they can hold the line.  The RINOs and the media will come with their abuse in about 3,2, 1 ….

I’d say Mr. Budd is hanging out with the right kind of folks up there in DC. Let’s hope he keeps it up.

Why can’t Tillis get behind something like this?  Perhaps his daddy Mitch won’t let him?

So, Tillis has already shot us the bird on: spending, immigration, gun control, and the gay political agenda.  Here he is doing it again on spending. 

So, I have to ask all of you RINOs out there: WHEN does the treachery, the arrogance, the utter disregard for the party’s base and platform finally get to be unbearable?
