U.S. Illinois Congresswoman Mary Miller says she’s voting no on proposed federal budget


An area congresswoman says she will vote “no” on the deal that’s intended to avoid a potentially disastrous default on U.S. debt.

The deal was worked out over the weekend between President Biden and Republican U.S. House Speaker Kevin McCarthy, and needs to get through Congress by June 5 in order to avoid a first-ever federal default.

But GOP Congresswoman Mary Miller says the agreement will add $4 trillion to the nation’s debt without mandating sufficient cuts in federal spending.

Opposition from Republicans like Miller means the deal will have to draw a substantial number of Democratic votes in order to pass the House.
