Arizona Republican Congressman Andy Biggs joins Fox Across America With Jimmy Failla to explain why he’s opposed to passing more spending bills as a way to avert a government shutdown.
“It happens under both parties. And right now you’re here with these guys. It’s like the worst thing in the world. But in reality, because we’ve done this so many times, and I want to say I’ve never voted for one, but my colleagues have done it so many times. Periodically, they will put in a piece of legislation and say, well, if we shut down again, if we have to do a C.R., if there’s a shutdown in any way, then this keeps funded or that keeps funded. So basically you keep it going. And we have four bills that are actually, if we hadn’t said, we’re not going to vote for your garbage, we’re not going to vote for this, they would not be moving these bills, but they’re moving the bills finally. And if those four bills pass, then basically you have 15, 17 percent of the government, something of that magnitude that would be impacted. But if you’re impacted, it’s like a vacation, because in the end, we pay you everything back. Everybody gets it. So that’s where we’re sitting right now and the C.R. that they’ve proposed, the C.R. that the moderate side of the Republicans have proposed, they said, look, we got 32 Republicans, 32 Democrats that are going to do this and we’re going to keep spending at this level and we’re going to fund Ukraine.”
