Press Release

Washington, D.C. - Today, Congressman Brendan Boyle (D-PA-13) issued the following statement about the proposed bi-partisan budget deal:

“Since taking office in January I have encountered many frustrations on Capitol Hill.  However, last night’s compromise on a multi-year budget package is one of the best examples of bipartisan progress I have seen in the past 10 months.  As I continue to evaluate the final package, I applaud those on both sides of the aisle who came together to achieve progress on these important issues.”

“The deal ensures equal increases in funding defense and non-defense priorities, extends the solvency of Social Security Disability Insurance, and affirms that the full faith and credit of the United States is non-negotiable with the inclusion of a clean debt limit suspension.  I am also very pleased to see the deal protects millions of seniors from a significant increase in their Medicare Part B premiums and deductibles next year.”

“Although I am still evaluating the specifics of the 144-page deal, it is encouraging to see my colleagues put people before politics.  I hope we continue this bipartisan work in the year ahead.”
