Washington, DC – Today, Congresswoman Gwen Moore (WI-04) released this statement after voting for the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2013. This Act passed the House of Representatives by a vote of 332-94. 
 
“Congress has existed one manufactured crisis to the next. Today marked a small but positive step towards breaking this pattern. The budget agreement reached by Senator Patty Murray (D-WA) and Representative Paul Ryan (WI-01) represents true compromise. I congratulate both Sen. Murray and my Wisconsin colleague Rep. Ryan on negotiating in good faith. 
 
“Neither party received all of what was asked. Republicans were not able to reduce funding for those who rely on our critical entitlement programs. In addition, this deal only partially replaces the sequester and does nothing to assuage the concerns of approximately 1.3 million Americans, including thousands in Wisconsin, who will lose unemployment insurance on December 28 should Congress not act. 
 
“Although this deal is not perfect, it allows Congress to continue our dialogue about how we can better serve our constituents. It also affords us the opportunity to discuss items not directly related to the budget, such as passing comprehensive immigration reform. 
 
“In light of this bipartisan agreement, I urge my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to come together and continue the work we were sent here to do.”
