Statement on H.J. Res. 99 "No" Vote

WASHINGTON, D.C. - Today, Representative Thomas Massie voted against H.J. Res. 99, the Continuing Resolution (CR) that kicked the can down the road and only funded the Federal Government until next Friday.

"Since entering Congress, I have championed funding the government through regular order. This means 12 separate appropriations bills considered in an open process. Today's Continuing Resolution, extending government funding for a week, is an embarrassment. Congress's main responsibility is to allocate federal funds, yet House Leadership acts surprised by the funding deadline they created.
