Marsha Blackburn Amendment Will Stop Democrats from Abusing Emergency Declarations in Order to Spend Taxpayer Money

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) released the following statement after the Senate voted on her amendment to strike provisions in Bernie’s Budget Resolution that would allow Congress to declare anything and everything an emergency and recklessly spend Americans’ hard-earned tax dollars.

“Chuck Schumer and Bernie Sanders are attempting to rewrite the rules to jam through their socialist agenda,” said Senator Blackburn.
