Washington, D.C. — Today, U.S. Congressman Matt Gaetz (FL-01) issued the following statement following his "no" vote on the House budget deal:

"Earlier today, the House passed a budget deal brokered by Speaker Nancy Pelosi. Instead of exhibiting fiscal restraint, Speaker Pelosi’s budget is a wish list for Democrat priorities and wasteful spending. If the budget is a roadmap for the American people, then Speaker Pelosi is driving us into spending oblivion. We cannot allow this. I encourage President Trump to negotiate a deal that strengthens our military, helps our veterans, and cuts our bloated spending," -Rep. Gaetz said
