A press release from Congressman Randy Hultgren:
Hultgren Votes to Impound the Government Credit Card
Washington, DC — U.S. Representative Randy Hultgren (IL-14) today voted not to raise the nation’s debt ceiling above $17.2 trillion.
“Our country continues to spend more money than it takes in, borrows money it doesn’t have to make up the difference, and it’s the American taxpayer who pays the bill,” said Rep. Hultgren.
“I cannot in good conscience vote to extend Washington’s borrowing capacity yet again without any meaningful movement to reduce how many taxpayer dollars the government spends.
“I am disappointed by the inability of Washington to do what Americans do every day—spend what they bring in, and nothing more.”
