In voting no on the debt limit deal in Washington, Bill Johnson told the Wheeling Intelligencer the following:
Stating the legislation failed to offer "any protection from the abuses, expenses, and overreach of Obamacare," Rep. Bill Johnson, R-Ohio, voted against the Wednesday compromise that will increase the debt ceiling and put federal employees back to work.
"The American people have had to tighten their belts in this weak economy, and Washington should be forced to do the same. The fact that there are no spending cuts in this legislation means that Washington continues to demand more from the American taxpayers, but refuses to put itself on any kind of budget. And, that is not fair."
