WASHINGTON- Congressman Bob Latta (R-Bowling Green) made the following
statement after voting against H.R. 1, the American Recovery and
Reinvestment Act of 2009.
"Stimulating our nation's economy cannot come from pork barrel spending.
The Democrat majority have littered H.R. 1 with wasteful government
spending that only puts our country further into debt with no real
effect on our economy in the immediate future. The non-partisan
Congressional Budget Office projects that 60 percent of the
discretionary spending in this bill will occur after 2010.
