Congressman Dan Kildee (MI-05) issued the following statement today on H.R. 325:
"House Republicans seem to be more concerned with political gimmicks than on relieving the uncertainty our economy and financial markets continue to face due to these artificial debt ceiling debacles. This latest temporary proposal will simply extend the debt ceiling until May and set us up to do this all over again in just three short months. Though Republicans have backed off their threat of default for the time being, our economy cannot afford another manufactured crisis like we saw last August, where our nation's credit rating was downgraded for the first time due to GOP brinkmanship."
