Price: Pay Freeze Is Just a Start

Congressman Tom Price (R-GA) issued the following statement after President Obama proposed freezing federal civilian employee pay for two years.

“The last few years have been like one endless Thanksgiving dinner, with Washington loosening its belt and showing an insatiable appetite for spending,” said Congressman Price. “Now $1.3 trillion annual deficits are giving taxpayers a gut-wrenching stomachache. The list of spending cuts needed to get the federal budget down to size stretches for miles. Freezing federal pay is on that list, but it is only one item of many. Much, much more remains on the cutting board.

“House Republicans proposed a federal pay freeze earlier this year, but our efforts were stopped by members of President Obama’s own party. Hopefully this announcement marks the beginning of a long-overdue commitment from Democrats to reduce spending.”
