GOP freshman Huelskamp says no deal on new CR 

Opposition to another stop-gap continuing resolution is growing as Rep. Tim Huelskamp, R-KS, has announced that he will vote against such a proposal.

"We were elected to make bold changes to federal spending and to reverse our unsustainable deficits," Huelskamp said.

"By allowing President Obama and Senator Reid to stall a budget they should have completed 6 months ago, we are being distracted from even bigger tasks: tackling the $1.1 trillion deficit in the president’s reckless 2012 budget and negotiating real budget reform, such as a balanced budget amendment, within a debt ceiling debate," he said.

The new CR is unacceptable because it "omits many of the priorities the American people demanded we pass in H.R. 1: stopping job-killing EPA regulations, defunding Obamacare, and denying taxpayer funding of Planned Parenthood and abortion. By allowing continued funding of these liberal priorities, we are ignoring the mandate of the American people," the Kansas Republican said.
