Wicker named to joint budget panel



Daily Journal

WASHINGTON – Sen. Roger Wicker, R-Miss., a member of the Senate Budget Committee, has been named to a budget conference committee between the House and Senate.

The legislation to reopen the government passed by Congress Wednesday required the panel to deliver a spending plan to both chambers of Congress by Dec. 13.

“I am hopeful that Democrats will negotiate with us in good faith to slow the growth rate of our automatic spending programs and deliver a budget that reduces federal debt without raising taxes on hard-working families,” Wicker said.

When you do that Senator you are on a “Fool’s Errand” for sure! When do you think the TEAPOTTYIERS will primary you? Next time up I’m guessing! Oh Boy!!!

    It’s always “Entitlements” with Grocery Tax Wicker. Maybe it’s time to reduce your entitlement, Roger. At least 45% of that wasteful salary you receive as Senator Wicker, That would be one remedy for overspending that would be totally moral!
