MCDANIEL CONDEMNS RYAN-MURRAY DEAL

Urges Cochran to Oppose Spending Increases

December 10, 2013. (Laurel, MS) – Republican U.S. Senate candidate Chris McDaniel condemned the Ryan-Murray spending deal that would blow through budget caps, increase federal spending, and refuse to deal with the country’s impending debt crisis.

According to press reports, the deal orchestrated by Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) and Senator Patty Murray (D-WA) would eliminate some of the sequester cuts already in place and increase federal spending to $1.015 trillion, above the $967 billion currently set by law.

“Our country is facing a debt crisis, and instead of cutting spending Washington politicians are making deals to eliminate what small spending cuts are already in place and increase spending further,” McDaniel said. “The Ryan-Murray deal is a complete abdication of Washington’s governing responsibility.

“Unfortunately, Republicans in Washington are just as much to blame as Democrats. After increasing spending for years, many Republican politicians are now acquiescing to Democratic demands to continue business as usual. I urge Sen. Cochran to reject this deal and insist on absolutely no spending increases.”
