Johnson doesn’t support budget deal

WASHINGTON, D.C. (WNAX) – A divided U.S. House approved a two-year budget deal Thursday, increasing spending by over $300 billion and suspends the debt ceiling for two years.

South Dakota Congressman Dusty Johnson says he couldn’t support the bill.

Johnson says the bill doesn’t do anything to address the expanding national debt.

Johnson says Republicans still care about debt and the deficit.

The bill passed the House on a vote of 284-149. The House will now adjourn for the August recess.
