More on Spending Cuts and Debt

June 7, 2018 Press Release
The House passes the Spending Cuts to Expired and Unnecessary Programs Act, rescinding nearly $15 billion of unobligated balances from previously appropriated funding.
May 24, 2018 Press Release
The Good Accounting Obligation in Government (GAO-IG) Act would stop wasteful spending in federal agencies and bring needed accountability using GAO and IG reports.
May 9, 2018 Press Release
Rescissions aren’t merely a Republican political maneuver against Democrats. President Clinton used the process 166 times to save more than $3.5 billion. While effective, the most recent package sent by President Trump is especially innocuous, politically speaking, clawing back unneeded, unspent funds, some of which were appropriated as far back as 1993.
April 12, 2018 Press Release
“Part of the reason I ran for Congress was frustration with Washington’s inability to spend within its means and show fiscal leadership. That is why I made a pledge to the people of North Carolina to push for a Balanced Budget Amendment to the Constitution."
March 27, 2018 Press Release
“Right now, North Carolina taxpayers are having their hard-earned money wasted by federal bureaucrats who have been told how to improve and become more efficient, but refuse to follow recommendations. That is unacceptable. This bipartisan legislation will make government better, more accountable, and save taxpayer dollars.”
March 22, 2018 Press Release
Though there are some positives in the bill, it is not even near in keeping with our promises to the voters who sent us here to lead. 17 hours to read 2,232 pages with a $1.3 trillion price tag is not a path for Republican success in November. Nor for our nation.
March 20, 2018 Press Release
"Washington must be more fiscally responsible. It’s not only about elections, it’s about doing what’s best for the next generation."
February 9, 2018 Press Release
"This budget irresponsibly and unnecessarily escalates a serious threat at home. Fiscal discipline is not a principle of convenience and responsible governing requires making the tough choices and keeping your promises."
February 1, 2018 Press Release
"To make certain SNAP is serving whom it was intended, we have to eliminate fraud and abuse and focus on what works," Walker said. "Through responsible reforms, we can ensure every individual has the opportunity to improve their economic circumstances, escape the cycle of poverty and achieve their full potential."
January 16, 2018 Press Release

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Representative Mark Walker (R-N.C.) penned an op-ed for The Wall Street Journal outlining why Congress reviving earmarks would be a foolish decision.
