House Rejects Senate Debt Ceiling Plan on Bipartisan Vote

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

Congresswoman Mary Bono Mack (CA-45) released the following statement today after Democrats and Republicans in the U.S. House of Representatives rejected the Senate's debt ceiling plan:

"While I share the frustration being felt by many Americans, I remain hopeful that Congress will approve a plan in the next few days to avoid defaulting on our national debt, while at the same time significantly cutting federal spending. That's the best way to get our economy moving forward again.

"Unfortunately, the Senate plan included too many budgetary gimmicks to warrant serious consideration. What's important now is for both sides to reach a compromise that's in the best long-term interests of our nation."
