Joyce Votes to Avoid Default, Reduce Spending, and Strengthen Economy
WASHINGTON, DC – Yesterday, Congressman Dave Joyce (OH-14) released the following statement after voting in favor of the Fiscal Responsibility Act.
“Tonight, I proudly voted yes on the Fiscal Responsibility Act for Americans now, and for our future generations. The Fiscal Responsibility Act – which is based on the House Republican’s Limit, Save, Grow Act – avoids a catastrophic default while strengthening our economy.
“Specifically, this legislation will reduce budget deficits by $1.5 trillion, improve our budgetary process, and spur economic growth through provisions to improve NEPA permitting and complete the Mountain Valley Pipeline, which will support energy producers in Ohio and energy consumers across the region. This bill also includes commonsense reforms to social welfare programs that will increase program integrity, while helping more able-bodied Americans enter the workforce – something Republicans across the political spectrum have long championed.
“Thank you to Speaker McCarthy, Chairman McHenry, and Congressman Graves for fighting to preserve critical conservative priorities during their negotiations with the White House. I encourage my colleagues in the Senate to move swiftly to pass this bill and send it to the President’s desk for signature.”
