Tuberville Votes No On $1.2 Trillion Spending Bill

WASHINGTON – Today, U.S. Senator Tommy Tuberville (R-AL) voted no on the $1.2 trillion spending bill. 

“This 1,000-page, $1.2 trillion bill was delivered without adequate time to review and is packed with wasteful spending and budget gimmicks that try to hide the true cost,” said Senator Tuberville. “Our nation is nearly $35 trillion in debt. We’ve got to get a handle on our spending, and this bill is all talk and no action. This bill fails to take any meaningful steps to address the most pressing crisis our country is facing – the invasion of illegal immigrants and drugs at the southern border.

“Democrats also did everything in their power to stop us from debating important amendments. All 51 Democrats blocked my amendment that would protect female athletes by keeping men out of women’s sports.

“For these reasons, I voted no. The status quo is unsustainable, and this bill is more of the same. It paves the way for America’s continued decline.”

Senator Tommy Tuberville represents Alabama in the United States Senate and is a member of the Senate Armed Services, Agriculture, Veterans’ Affairs, and HELP Committees.
