Mr. BROUN of Georgia. Mr. Speaker, it is long past time that we stop rewarding irresponsibility. If we continue to give the Democrat administration everything that they ask for, they will never learn fiscal discipline or how to control their outrageous spending.
Taxpayers do not want to write the administration yet another blank check out of their own checkbooks, only to see it bounce and further worsen our economy, along with job creation. Americans have said loudly and clearly that they want serious spending cuts, and I will not support raising the debt ceiling unless this liberal administration begins to practice some self-control.
