Sen. Toomey: 'Finished' Voting for Short-Term Budget Fixes

ABC News(WASHINGTON) -- The pressure is on congressional leaders to solve this year’s budget stand-off once and for all, with a growing number of Republicans insisting that they won’t support any further short-term patches.

Sen. Pat Toomey, R-Pa., tells ABC News that his patience with short-term fixes is running thin.

“I don't want to see a government shutdown and I don't know any of my colleagues who do. And I voted for the first House-passed continuing resolution and I voted for both the short-term resolutions,” said Toomey.

“But I'm probably finished voting for short-term resolutions. I think we should solve this problem and move on.”
