Major Victory on Letter to Sustain Spending Vetoes

Posted: Jun 14, 2007 2:05 PM

I am pleased to join the Republican Study Committee in announcing that we’ve gathered enough signatures on our letter pledging to sustain the President’s veto of appropriations bills that exceed his request for FY08. We have a total of 147 signers, and we needed 146 to sustain the veto. Today’s news is a major victory for House conservatives, and even a bigger victory for American taxpayers who will save $23 billion.

The 147 Signers are: Alexander, Akin, Bachmann, Bachus, Spencer, Baker, Barrett, Bartlett, Biggert, Bilbray, Bishop, Blackburn, Blunt, Boehner, Bono, Bonner, Boozman, Boustany, Brady, Brown, Buchanan, Burton, Buyer, Calvert, Camp, Campbell, Cannon, Cantor, Carter, Chabot, Coble, Conaway, Cole, Crenshaw, Culberson, Cubin, Davis, (Jo Ann), Davis, (David) Davis (Geoff) Deal, Diaz-Balart (Lincoln) Diaz-Balart (Mario), Doolittle, Drake, Thelma, Dreier, Duncan, English, Fallin, Feeney, Flake, Forbes, Foxx, Franks, Gallegly, Garrett, Gilchest, Gillmor, Gingrey, Gohmert, Goode, Granger, Hall, Hastert, Heller, Hensarling, Herger, Hoekstra, Hunter, Inglis, Issa, Jindal, Johnson, Jordan, Keller, King (Peter), King (Steve), Kingston, Kline, Kuhl, Lahood, Lamborn, Latham, LaTourette, Lewis (Ron), Lewis (Jerry) Linder, Lucas, Lungren, Mack, Manzullo, Marchant, McCarthy, McCaul, McCrery, McCotter, McHenry, McKeon, McMorris-Rodgers, Mica, Miller (Gary), Miller (Jeff) Musgrave, Myrick, Neugebauer, Randy, Nunes, Paul, Pearce, Pence, Pickering, Pitts, Poe, Porter, Price, Putnam, Radanovich, Reynolds, Rohrabacher, Rogers (Harold), Rogers, Mike (MI), Rogers, Mike (AL), Roskam, Royce, Ryan, Sali, Schmidt, Sensenbrenner, Sessions, Shadegg, Shays, Shimkus, Shuster, Smith (Adrian), Smith (Lamar), Souder (Mark) Stearns, Sullivan, Tancredo, Terry, Tiahrt, Tiberi, Walberg, Walden, Wamp, Weldon, Westmoreland, Whitfield, Wicker, Wilson
