Osborn calls for more fiscal restraint in Washington

NORFOLK, NE. (KTIV/US92) - Former Nebraska State Treasurer Shane Osborn is continuing his trek across the state in his bid for the Republican nomination for U.S. Senate.

Osborn said the recent debate on Capitol Hill, over extending the federal debt ceiling serves a reminder that common sense fiscal policy needs to return to Washington.  He says Congress shouldn't spend money it doesn't have.

“There’s over 60 redundant agencies that have already been identified by the government accountability office, there’s over $60 billion in savings right there. There’s obviously entities that are too large, and then we have to have good serious debate on what the government serious debate about what the government should be doing in our lives and they shouldn’t,” said Osborn.

Osborn will face Midland University President Ben Sasse, Omaha Attorney Bart McLeay, Fort Calhoun Businessman Clifton Johnson, and Pinnacle Bank President Sid Dinsdale in the May 13th primary for a seat being vacated by Senator Mike Johanns.
