Statement by President Obama on Passage of Further Continuing Appropriations Amendments, 2011

Washington, D.C.–(ENEWSPF)–March 2, 2011.  

I’m pleased that Democrats and Republicans in Congress came together and passed a plan that will cut spending and keep the government running for the next two weeks.  But we cannot keep doing business this way.  Living with the threat of a shutdown every few weeks is not responsible, and it puts our economic progress in jeopardy.  That’s why I’m calling on Democratic and Republican leaders of Congress to begin meeting immediately with the Vice President, my Chief of Staff, and Budget Director so we can find common ground on a budget that makes sure we are living within our means.  This agreement should cut spending and reduce deficits without damaging economic growth or gutting investments in education, research and development that will create jobs and secure our future.  This agreement should be bipartisan, it should be free of any party’s social or political agenda, and it should be reached without delay.
