Statement on Reid Debt Limit Plan


Location: Washington, DC

Congressman Robert Aderholt (AL-04), today issued the following statement after voting against Senator Harry Reid's "Budget Control Act", the measure failed to pass the United States House of Representatives by 173-246:

"Last evening, the House passed yet another piece of legislation that would end the debt limit crisis, avoid a job-crushing national default, cut nearly a trillion dollars in spending, while making sure our seniors and military are protected," said Aderholt. "The American people do not want Congress to pass a bill that gives the Administration a blank check, includes countless budget gimmicks and no real cuts or reforms to restrain future spending. Therefore, Senate Democrats should adopt the House passed legislation and put this entire issue to rest."
