WASHINGTON – Sens. Mike Lee (R-UT) and Jeff Sessions (R-AL) sent a Dear Colleague letter to their fellow senators Wednesday urging them to oppose the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2015.
From the letter:
“Just four years ago we forced the president and Senate Democrats to agree to the Budget Control Act of 2011 in exchange for raising the debt ceiling. That legislation increased the amount of we can borrow in exchange for $2.1 trillion in spending cuts. We were able to win this concession from the other side despite having only 45 members in the Senate and a much smaller majority in the House. Today, we have a 54-seat majority in the Senate and the largest House majority since 1930, but somehow we have no choice but to roll back these spending cuts and to increase the debt ceiling without any offsets. We cannot expect things to be any different in the future unless we make a conscious decision to change the way we do business here in the Senate.”
