MCLINKO STATEMENT ON BIPARTISAN BUDGET DEAL
“I condemn the bipartisan budget deal passed by Congress early this morning. I am a strong supporter of our President and our armed forces, however, this spending bill uses the military as a façade to continue funding the swamp in Washington, D.C.
I agree with Congressman Scott Perry (R-PA), a Brigadier General in the Pennsylvania Army National Guard, who called the deal a “disgrace.” I applaud him for protecting the taxpayers of this great nation. During my service as a Bradford County Commissioner, I have cut taxes, eliminated debt and reduced the size of county government. I will bring these same values to Congress, unlike my opponent Rep. Tom Marino who voted to increase federal spending by billions of dollars – typical Washington behavior.”
