Cravaack Supports Huge Cuts

U.S. Congressman Chip Cravaack admits his support of $100 billion in cuts will be painful for families in northeastern Minnesota.

The 8th District Republican says, ”This is an historic day, both for the U.S. House of Representatives and for the country as a whole. Never before has this body even attempted what we accomplished this past week in considering and passing H.R. 1, the Full-Year Continuing Appropriations Act for Fiscal Year 2011. This legislation contains over $100 billion in spending cuts when compared to the President’s budget for this year. That is a massive number, only made to appear smaller when compared to our projected $1.6 trillion deficit this year and the more than $14 trillion we currently owe in total."
