Senator Ron Johnson (WI) released the following statement regarding the news that the United States debt has reached $16 trillion:
"16 trillion dollars of debt means spending in Washington is completely out of control. 16 trillion dollars means our economy is not growing as it should. 16 trillion dollars means jobs aren't being created. 16 trillion dollars means the Obama administration is leading America down the path of economic disaster and continued suffering for the American people.
"Fixing Washington and growing our economy are the most serious challenges our nation faces today. It will take serious leadership to begin fixing what is broken in Washington and our national economy. President Obama has proven he is not up to the task."
