Consolidated and Further Continuing Appropriations Act of 2013
H.R. 933 - Roll Call 62
Liberty for All's PositionIn addition to continuing down the path of unsustainable and reckless spending, this bill allowed Congress to fund the government while abdicating their responsibility to pass a budget. It continued to delay any real effort to rein in spending and reduce the national debt. While billed as an "emergency" measure designed to prevent a government shutdown, the bill provided for multi-year appropriations and was brought to the floor without allowing amendments or extended debate, which failed to permit everyday citizens or their elected representatives to have their proper input on government funding. Liberty For All opposes efforts of Washington bureaucrats to strong arm legislation through Congress without proper debate as well as the consistent failure to address needed spending cuts thereby placing the burden of these failures on future generations.
