Dover, NH – Eddie Edwards, a Republican candidate for Congress in NH-01, issued the following statement in response to the House of Representatives passing the $1.3 trillion spending bill.
"Once again, the power brokers in Washington, D.C. have failed the American people. While I appreciate the effort to find a bi-partisan solution and believe there are some positive aspects to the legislation, the spending bill that passed the House is yet another example of how career politicians are blatantly incapable of fulfilling their promises.
"The voters sent a clear message in 2016. They wanted a Congress that would cut spending and increase government transparency. Instead, they are getting more spending wrapped into a bill that no Member of Congress even had the time to read or fully debate. The American taxpayer deserves so much better than this."
