Louisiana Congressman Jeff Landry Votes Down Federal Funding Bill
With America facing a potential government shutdown by the end of the day, one member of Louisiana's Congressional delegation says a compromise bill proposed to avoid such a shutdown doesn't do enough.
Republican Representative Jeff Landry voted down a bill which would fund vast portions of the federal budget. Landry says H.R. 2055 doesn't do enough to cut back on spending.
"While [the bill] may meet Washington's standards for spending cuts," he says, "it certainly doesn't meet America's demand for a smaller, more efficient, and more accountable government."
The nearly 1 trillion dollar appropriations bill passed overwhelmingly in the House.
