U.S. Rep. Blaine Luetkemeyer (MO-03) issued the following statement after supporting the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2015:

“Today’s budget agreement fully funds our military, enacts significant entitlement reforms, prevents a dramatic spike in Medicare premiums for millions of seniors, puts us on track to save more than $2 trillion, and ends the cycle of government by crisis, all without raising taxes.  While it is far from perfect, and contains some provisions that I oppose and others that don’t go far enough, it is the best option on the table and is far better than the alternative envisioned by the Democrats and the Obama Administration.”
