"Hey, that’s not right! Some of us weren’t here to vote “no” on that budget-busting “deal,” but will vote “no” this year if we don’t hold to caps-level spending. If DOD needs to go up, then do some mandatory reforming and/or hold non-defense discretionary to the caps or less..."

@club4growth asks, "In Feb. 2018, @justinamash voted against the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2018, which increased the discretionary spending caps in FY2018 & FY2019 by a total $296 billion. @justinamash, will you commit to vote against the next bipartisan deal to increase spending? #HoldToTheCaps"
"Raising the spending caps and increasing spending - when we are already $22 trillion in debt - will only make our fiscal crisis worse and further burden future generations. That’s just typical Washington politics and I can’t support it. You can count me in the “NO” column."
"Absolutely, 100%. The new Democratic majority is pushing socialism and can’t produce a budget because of infighting between the “Spend More Caucus” and the “Spend WAY More Caucus.” It’s not the time to erase all limits or protections we have to resist Washington’s power grab."
"Yes. Not voting for it." -@RepMarkMeadows

"Same!" - @RepRonWright
In response to @RepKenBuck tweet: I will not support any budget deal that increases our country’s federal spending. Our nation’s $22 trillion debt is unconscionable and it is a burden to our children & future generations. I join my colleagues in urging @SpeakerPelosi to #HoldToTheCaps. https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/house-republicans-to-call-on-pelosi-to-keep-to-spending-limits
Restoring fiscal responsibility is the only way to create a secure and prosperous future for generations to come, and that starts with making sure we #HoldTheCaps. See what @RepJimBanks and I had to say on this very issue here (https://rsc-johnson.house.gov/news/press-releases/johnson-banks-slam-democrat-plan-raise-spending-caps)
Our national debt is soaring higher than ever before, and policymakers must recognize this problem for what it ultimately is: a spending problem. @SpeakerPelosi and Democrats in the House are certainly not unaware of our country’s fiscal state. Time to #BalanceTheBudget.
