Smith Opposes Partisan Short-Term Spending Bill

Washington, DC – Congressman Adrian Smith (R-NE) released the following statement after opposing Democrats’ short-term federal spending bill, which passed the House on a 221-212 vote:


“This resolution is a symptom of two major problems: Democrats’ singular focus on their social spending package and Democrats’ unwillingness to stand down from extreme policy proposals like unlimited taxpayer funding of abortion.


Our focus must be on stopping inflation, getting Americans back to work, and reopening and rebuilding our supply chains. I appreciate the efforts of senators to amend this bill to block President Biden’s unilateral vaccine mandates which will only hurt our economy more, and I hope they are successful in sending back an improved bill.”
