Coffman Statement On Appropriations Vote
(Washington, D.C.) Today, Congressman Mike Coffman (R-CO) released the following statement after voting against the $1 trillion Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2014:
“I’m voting against the $1 trillion omnibus appropriations bill for the same reason that I voted against the budget. It breaks the spending caps on defense without any real effort at reforming how the Pentagon operates. I will continue to work hard to reform the Pentagon to make sure that every dollar appropriated for the defense of our country is effectively spent for that purpose,” said Coffman, a Marine Corps combat veteran.
