The U.S. House of Representatives is expected to vote today on a bill that would increase the federal government's debt limit by $2.4 trillion with no spending cuts attached. Congressman Paul Broun, M.D. (GA-10) released the following statement rejecting the proposal:
"Georgians 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. It's long past time to show the liberal leaders of this nation that if they continue to irresponsibly squander our money, then we will cut them off until they learn to practice some self control. I have urged my colleagues in Washington to reject this spending increase, and will continue to hold the line until we see the kind of cuts that Americans have been calling for."
