Press Release

WASHINGTON – U.S. Rep. Jim Cooper (TN-05) today issued the following statement:

“This bill is fiscal lunacy. In less than two months, $4 trillion has been added to our debt and $1 trillion deficits are guaranteed for the foreseeable future,” Rep. Cooper said. “President Trump bankrupted several companies already; now he’s trying to bankrupt America. There are responsible ways to fund the government. This definitely was not one of them.”
