Washington, D.C. - U.S. Rep. Ed Perlmutter (CO-07) released the following statement after voting against the budget agreement, which passed the U.S. House of Representatives:

“Congressional Republicans proved once again they cannot responsibly govern. Less than two months after passing a tax bill which adds $1.5 trillion to the debt, today we were forced to vote on legislation adding another $300 billion to the debt. This includes huge increases for the military that the Defense Department didn’t even ask for. Further, the deal in no way addresses protections for Dreamers after the terrible decision by President Trump to end the DACA program and create chaos and confusion for thousands of people and their families in Colorado and across the country.”
