Statement on Debt Limit Vote

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

Congressman David Rivera (FL-25) released the following statement regarding today's debt limit vote:

"While today's debt limit vote is certainly no solution to our nation's debt problem, it lays the foundation to move forward with real reforms and solutions such as a constitutional amendment to balance the federal budget.

"I continue to oppose any effort to raise the nation's debt without such reforms.

"However, by cutting more spending than it raises in debt, by not raising taxes, by capping future spending, and by providing an opportunity to move forward on a balanced budget constitutional amendment, today's vote provided the only alternative to President Obama's and the liberal Senate's irresponsible tax and spend plans to increase the debt.

"We now have an obligation to the American people to implement lasting solutions to our debt problem that will help stimulate the economy and create jobs."
