Rep. Burchett statement on motion to vacate the chair

WASHINGTON, D.C., (October 3, 2023) – Today, U.S. Congressman Tim Burchett (TN-02) released the following statement on his intention to vote for the motion to vacate the chair.

“I have to vote my conscience. We failed to do our job and pass a budget and then passed a temporary spending bill to extend the deadline like we do every year. It’s a tough decision, but I’m poised to vote for the motion to vacate because we are $33 trillion dollars in debt. We either need to change our direction or change our leadership.”

The vote is expected to happen in the early afternoon.
