Long votes against short-term resolution, old spending priorities

 – U.S. Representative Billy Long issued the following statement regarding today’s continuing resolution vote in the House of Representatives:

“Today’s spending bill was loaded with expenditures that represent past priorities, not the ones that the people in my district want to see me fight for,” said Rep. Long.  “It’s time for the Republican Congress to exert the power of this institution and support true conservative principles like defunding Planned Parenthood. Taxpayer dollars should not go to any abortion provider.”
