Greg Walden: We have to stop kicking the can down the road

Posted: Updated:

WASHINGTON, D.C. — U.S. Rep. Greg Walden (R-Ore.) today issued the following statement after voting against a temporary continuing resolution and debt limit extension:

"This plan temporary plan does nothing to address the epic problem: spending borrowed money we don't have and cannot sustain.  It kicks the can down the road yet again for only three months, and we'll be right back where we ended up this week. Enough is enough. Every day, families throughout Oregon and the country sit down around their kitchen tables to balance their budgets and discuss crises and practical ways to resolve them.  It's long overdue that Washington, D.C. do the same."
